Based upon fieldwork among Tamil refugees from Sri Lanka's Northern Province living in Norway and among Muslims in Sri Lanka's Eastern Province, I will in the following discuss migration and nonmigration as related to social practices and political imagery in Sri Lanka.

The questions of when and for what particular reasons people decide to flee from conflict situations have been of interest to refugee research since its inception (Kunz 1973). In this chapter I argue that in dealing with these questions we need to take into consideration broader issues and more deep-seated traditions than the immediate trigger mechanisms that make people break up and leave. In particular we need to understand how the people concerned conceptualise space and their own communities within it. To grasp the social dynamics behind processes of displacement we need to realise that individuals and communities do not respond in an equal manner to situations of conflict and violence.
