New publications: Oxford Monitor of Forced Migration Volume 4, No. 1


We are very excited to announce that the Oxford Monitor of Forced Migration (OxMo) Volume 4, No. 1 is now online! You can access the issue online or download it as a PDF here:

OxMo is an independent, student-run journal that seeks to engage with various aspects of forced migration through academic scholarship by students and recent graduates. The authors in this issue concentrate on both emergency and protracted situations of displacement for a variety of populations. Some highlights of this issue include an academic article investigating the failures of the current IDP response model via an analytic approach to the ‘relief-development continuum'; a policy examination of the government of Kenya’s response to urban refugees through the lens of Giorgio Agamben’s ‘state of exception'; and a Firsthand Monitor article featuring the personal account of an anonymous transgender Rwandan refugee currently living in Uganda.

We would like to thank our authors and fellow editors for helping create this issue of OxMo. It was compiled by an editing team spanning multiple continents and contains work by authors from a diversity of nationalities, ranging from Nigeria to Venezuela to Canada; it is our hope that these articles will be read and shared just as widely.

New publications: ‘Afghanistan’s displaced people: 2014 and beyond’ – plus Statelessness mini-feature (Forced Migration Review issue 46)

FMR 46 now online – ‘Afghanistan’s displaced people: 2014 and beyond’ – plus Statelessness mini-feature

Forced Migration Review issue 46, entitled ‘Afghanistan’s displaced people: 2014 and beyond’, is now online at

2014 is widely seen as marking a watershed for Afghanistan with its legacy of thirty-five years of conflict and one of the world’s largest populations in protracted displacement. International military forces are being withdrawn and the country is ‘in transition’ – politically, economically and in terms of security and its international standing. The high voter turnout in the recent presidential elections has been greeted as an encouraging sign for Afghanistan’s future but there is still considerable uncertainty about the capacity of the country to address the challenges of return, integration and reintegration, protection, access to rights, and continuing displacement.

FMR 46 contains 21 articles on Afghanistan, plus a mini-feature on Statelessness.

The full list of contents, with web links, is given below.

FMR 46 will be available online and in print in English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Dari and Pashto.

If you do not regularly receive a print copy of FMR and would like to receive a print copy for your organisation, or multiple copies for onward distribution or for use in training or at conferences, please contact us at

We are very grateful to the following organisations for their financial support of this issue: Norwegian Refugee Council, Open Society Justice Initiative, Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC)/Swiss Cooperation Office – Afghanistan, UN-Habitat, UNHCR Department of International Protection, UNHCR Office in Afghanistan and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

New publications: Forced Migration review issue 45 now online – on Crisis, migration and displacement – plus a selection of general articles

Forced Migration Review issue 45, entitled ‘Crisis’, is now online at

Many people who are displaced, or become ‘trapped’, in the context of diverse humanitarian crises do not fit well within existing legal, policy and operational frameworks for the protection of refugees and IDPs. This raises questions about whether there needs to be – or can be – more systematic ways of dealing with assistance and protection for people affected by ‘crises’ such as environmental disruption, gang violence, nuclear disasters, food shortages and so on.

FMR 45 contains 33 ‘theme’ articles on crisis, migration and displacement, and eight ‘general’ articles on subjects including Typhoon Haiyan, reparations in Latin America, discrimination in Burma, IDPs in Kenya, asylum in Lebanon, and contextualising educational standards

The full list of contents, with web links, is given at the end of this email.

FMR 45 will be available online and in print in English, French, Spanish and Arabic.

If you do not regularly receive a print copy of FMR and would like to receive a print copy for your organisation, or multiple copies for onward distribution or for use in training or at conferences, please contact us at

We are very grateful to the ISIM Crisis Migration Project and to the John D and Catherine T MacArthur Foundation for funding this issue.
