In a recent post to IslamiCommentary, a blog for perspectives and research on the study of Islam and the Muslim experience, Nadia El-Shaarawi uses the upcoming tenth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq as a touchstone for examining the plight of approximately 3 million displaced Iraqi refugees. El-Shaarawi uses her own work with Iraqi refugees in Egypt to explore reasons why refugees are reluctant to return to their home country, and the lack of resources the refugees face in their adopted nations.
