The humanitarian hangover is a very good book about the modern tanzanian state in general and refugee assistance in western tanzania in particular my only complaint is that with greater length it could have been a really great book about the nature of refugees citizenship and the state in africa. Since the mid 1990s western tanzania has hosted hundreds of thousands of refugees living in massive refugee camps sustained by millions of dollars of humanitarian aid this book explores the anomalous spaces and practices generated by this influx of. The book also adds significantly to scholarship on the regime of governmental practice in tanzania i recommend the humanitarian hangover to students and scholars of refugee and migration studies as a valuable resource in helping to understand the complexity of the effects of forced migration in western tanzania. Western tanzanias humanitarian hangover is a perplexing configuration of attitudes institutions and practices in this semi transnationalised space aid agencies the united nations un and refugees are exposing the functional weakness of the tanzanian state as it stands by unable to address persistent poverty and increasing insecurity.
