An Afield article titled "Refugee Housing without Exception" will be published in the peer-reviewed journal Space and Culture 19, 4 (November 2016): 390-405. The article is used to critique and present an alternative to a South African government plan to address a “massive refugee situation” by designing and constructing “model” refugee camps at the country’s land borders.
At no point in human history have so many people been forcibly displaced. According to UNHCR 65.3 million people have been forced from their home, with 21.3 million being refugees and half of all refugees being under the age of 18.
