Book Review


THE POWER OF STORIES and storytelling is central to the refugee experience, both from a legal and social perspective. In the refugee claim context, seeking asylum after fleeing one’s home country due to a well-founded fear of persecution requires, as Anthea Vogl explains, “that refugee applicants tell a good story—that is, one that predominantly conforms to the conventions of model narratives.” This demand for narrative requires the refugee to draw on well-known genres and stories of how certain people act in the face of fear and persecution.
