ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on the validity that people who are forced to leave home very often want to go back. The assumption is often considered the optimum behavior expected of refugees and is used as a basis for the policy of repatriation. Based on research made on Angolan refugees in Zambia, the study tries to illustrate that repatriation may not be as effective and efficient as it was acclaimed to be. Policies for developing repatriation plans are suggested.
