What is it about?

This commentary provides some context for issues highlighted in the article by Arakelyan & Ager (2020) and discusses potential implications of their analysis for theory, future research, practitioners, and policy makers. It discusses the current global scale of displacement, terminology surrounding refugees and asylum seekers, and the authors’ analyses of Bronfenbrenner’s bioecological and person–process–context–time (PPCT) models. It also identifies additional areas of research and potential implications for integrating theory, research, policy, and practice.
