The Iraqi refugee experience has taught us that the pathways and possibilities of belonging for refugees are complicated by the War on Terror’s reductive framing of Arabs and Muslims as terror threats. By staying with the Iraqi refugee story long after the world had turned its gaze to the next crisis, the conclusion to this book explains how the book attempts to restore a sense of humanity to people who are imagined as either victims or threats. This book is a witness to the struggle for belonging as it unfolded in the very human and quotidian dimensions of life—family, relationships, work, play, and faith. Belonging is claimed in the constant fight to become fully visible, to engage with the world in ways that allow for understanding and empathy.
