In this article, PhD researcher Mahardhika Sjamsoe’oed Sadjad looks at the particular themes of ‘solidarity and social jealousy’.

She argues that these emotions enable and motivate host societies to help refugees, while simultaneously limiting how much help refugees are allowed to expect or feel entitled to.

Part of a special issue of Third World Quarterly on emotions, affect and power, this article focuses on the reception of refugees in Indonesia. Sadjad argues that as refugees are forced to live indefinite periods of transit in Indonesia, they become increasingly susceptible to situated encounters with host societies.
