Traditionally, there have been three so-called durable solutions for refugees: return, resettlement and local integration. Yet these solutions are out of reach for most people displaced by conflict. In this lecture I address the experience of an increasing number of people forcibly displaced by conflict who cannot access a solution to their displacement. I focus in particular on the temporal injustice that people face when exile feels like a long waiting game with no end in sight. I show how the international community has failed the forced migrants through the dialectic between geopolitics of fear and geoeconomics of hope.
