Anthropology is a science which is most useful in uncovering the reasons of forced displacement across the world in different regions. There are multiple reasons that support such events like developmental reasons, atrocities, terrorism, environmental damage, and political decisions. These events create refugees, asylum seekers, who have lost all their rightful possessions also lose the last remaining right of theirs, identity. The outcomes are grievous and indescribable, as the life of the displaced becomes not of their own but of being controlled by others, their providers. The anthropologists suggests that the underlying reasons are not just contemporary, but historical and goes back to the complex system of human interactions that influences such displacement. There are many research conducted, but anthropology finds it best for itself to be associated with the forced displacement inquiry that are natural partners owing to the nature of their conduct, one resulting as the outcome of human interaction and the other as studying the reasons of human actions.
McEntire (2007) gives a very broad view of the events of forced displacements covering contemporary, historical, and pre-historical times. He asserts that these events of displacements cannot be termed as unpredictable, but are the product of human interactions and human systems. He adds that the very intent of decisions that create forced displacements have been human constructs since eternity and are manifested through the terms of social and culture influence. This view is indeed reliable in terms of its association with anthropology. Anthropology places itself as the best rescuer of the gaps that exist in current empirical research, ethical issues, and the claims of researchers of ‘doing no harm’ to the refugees. This is because it deals with the core of the problem, the complex human interaction system, which forces the rightful citizen to leave its territory. Thus, the underlying reasons for forced displacement remain at large and unconquered. It is mainly because of their invincibility, haphazard interpretations, and lacking to dig deeper into the real reasons of its occurrence, like human interaction and more on vague ones.
