Abstract

This paper uses ‘livelihood displacement’ theory to understand the disempowerment and social exclusion of forced migrants in a host country. To explore the real situation, this article reveals different strategies taken or adopted by Rohingya people who were forced to migrate in Bangladesh, like as, their struggle to access power or engagement in criminal activities. It is an attempt to investigate how the feeling of otherness in forced migrant’s mind creates migrationsecurity nexus in a host country like Bangladesh. This paper concludes that only shelter is not enough to lead a decent livelihood for forced migrants as it requires providing them with the access to asset, right to work and other legal facilities. The access to resources and legal facilities may help to restrict them from informal activities and security may come into the grip of Bangladesh government.
