Forced migration and processes of resettlement and adaptation to new environments require exiles and refugees to come to terms with unfamiliar circumstances and demands, often by assuming new roles and renegotiating expectations, behaviors, and relationships that have operated in the past. Many of these new circumstances are lived most intensely within the context of the household and are frequently enacted along the lines of gender. Household and gender relations, therefore, offer important sites for understanding how exiles and refugees come to terms with their new situations. This chapter discusses some of these renegotiations by setting them in the case of the Eritrean-Canadian diaspora population. We consider such renegotiations in the context of altered situations for employment and education, of encounters with North American culture and the influence of nationalist ideologies. Our observations are based on over a decade of participant-observation with communities in several Canadian cities, as well as data from interviews, focus group discussions, written questionnaires, and discourse analysis of various written texts and public meetings.1 Introduction Forced migration and processes of resettlement and adaptation to new environments require exiles and refugees to come to terms with unfamiliar circumstances and demands, often by assuming new roles and renegotiating expectations,
