abstract
The history of refugee policy has been analyzed until now mainly as a decision of the central authorities and this within an international refugee regime. This research has shown that this policy developed not only thanks to humanitarian and altruistic motives, but mainly because of pragmatic national and international interests. In this historical analyse the administrative category refugee has to be distinguished from the sociological category. Not all refugees have been eligible for refugee status. Also one should analyse refugee policy as part of aliens policy: refugee policy has been mainly created to provide an immigration possibility to those people who did not fit in due to the ever more regulated immigration and about whom the authorities considered that their forced expulsion was not acceptable. Also more attention to the strategies of the refugees themselves can improve our insight in refugee policy.
