Two paradigms that have shaped our understanding of refugee health are identified: the objectification of refugees as a political class of excess people, and the reduction of refugee health to disease or pathology.
Alternative paradigms are recommended: one to take the polyvocality of refugees into account, and one to construe refugees as prototypes of resilience despite major losses and stressors.
The article is organized into three sections, mirroring the life history of refugees from internal displacement in the country of origin to asylum in a second (usually neighboring) country, and for some, to permanent resettlement in a third country.
