The refugee’s figure is perhaps the most complete incarnation of “I have no one to turn to.” However, contemporary studies of the so-called “refugee wave” (“crisis,” “invasion,” etc.) in the media are reversed, right up to an analysis of issues affecting political, legal, economic, etc. prerequisites flowing mainly through the line of security-human rights discourse. These analyzes are undoubtedly important, but there seems to be no (or insignificant) presence of the problem of “social suffering” and “vulnerability”. The social exclusion of refugees is, as if totally out of the question, an exception even from the “system of social inequality” – the exclusion as a final form of deprivation, such as the lack of access to the inequalities themselves and the right to survive as an unequal, to the right to be a sufferer. Hence the idea of ​​this study, within the framework of the socio-analysis project, is to turn the focus: not the refugees who are overwhelming us, but the “being a refugee” that has overtaken the person whose identity is reduced to one status. The study of this borderline case of loss of identity, inability to successfully inherit, but also inability to succeed in self-inception would give a chance to an understanding of both the socioanalytical problems of biography and the loss of biographical illusio as well as the very problems of refugees and the daily pathologies of a state-of-emergency situation.
