Historians and social scientists specializing in sub-Saharan Africa examine dimensions of the emerging trend of specialists in African studies requesting an expert report for consideration as part of an asylum hearing or the determination of refugee status. They explore the role of court-centered expertise as it pertains to African asylum claims, and highlight the legal subjectivities of African refugees as a context for the production of new knowledge and ideas about historical and contemporary Africa.
