"An outstanding contribution to the understanding of gender roles, particularly in an Islamic setting, women’s studies, and the Sahrawis."—Choice

"Fiddian-Qasmiyeh’s book engages critically with the literature that sees Sahrawi refugees as ‘ideal’ due to their egalitarian social organization in camps, notably towards women, the lack of corruption and their ‘secular’ identity."—Mediterranean Politics

"This is a book devoted to, and is successful in, critically assessing how gender relations are constructed in and about the Sahrawi camps and are simultaneously derived from social, political, and humanitarian interactions on an international scale."—Journal of Refugee Studies

"An original and important contribution to refugee studies."—Christina Clark-Kazak, author of Recounting Migration
