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 www.fmreview.org/crisis

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 fmr@qeh.ox.ac.uk

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

See www.fmreview.org/forthcoming for details of forthcoming FMR issues on Afghanistan, Syria, and Faith-based organisations/responses to displacement.

“Global Trends in Immigration Detention and Alternatives to Detention: Practical, Political and Symbolic Rationales”
By Robyn Sampson, La Trobe University and Grant Mitchell, International Detention Coalition

The global growth of immigration detention has been accompanied by increased interest on the part of governments and international bodies in alternative programs. This paper argues that these apparently contradictory trends are influenced by competing political, policy and operational objectives. Drawing from research conducted by the International Detention Coalition and La Trobe University, the paper describes the Community Assessment and Placement (CAP) model, a tool which identifies steps that governments can take to prevent unnecessary detention and to improve the effectiveness of community-based, alternative to detention programs.

About the Journal

The Journal on Migration and Human Security (JMHS) is an online, peer-reviewed public policy publication of the Center for Migration Studies. JMHS addresses timely migration-related issues, scholarship and analysis that receive insufficient attention in US and international policy debates. JMHS draws upon the knowledge, expertise and perspectives of scholars, public officials, faith communities, community-based organizations, non-governmental organizations, corporate leaders and others. The journal’s theme of “human security” is meant to evoke the widely shared goals of creating secure and sustaining conditions in migrant sending communities; promoting safe, legal migration options; and developing immigration and integration policies that benefit sending and receiving communities and allow newcomers to lead productive, secure lives.

JMHS welcomes evidence-based papers that contain well-supported policy ideas. Information regarding submissions can be found at http://jmhs.cmsny.org/index.php/jmhs/about/submissions.

DARA: New blog launch

New DARA blog

Debating policies and principles to support principled humanitarian action

We are happy to announce that DARA is launching a blog (http://blog.daraint.org/) where regular staff contributors will debate on how policies and practices support principled humanitarian action. At a time of limited resources and capacity, and growing humanitarian needs, we hope to stimulate much needed conversations on issues such as humanitarian aid effectiveness, principles, and the gaps between policy and practice, for the benefit of the sector and the vulnerable populations it seeks to serve. Please drop by and leave your comments. Your suggestions are also welcome.

The blog kicks off with a post by DARA Chief Executive, Ed Schenkenberg, on the proposal to introduce a certification model for the humanitarian sector developed under the auspices of the Steering Committee for Humanitarian Response (SCHR).

New book: Refugee repatriation: Justice, responsibility and redress

With apologies for the self-promotion, this book may be of interest to listserv members:

Refugee repatriation: Justice, responsibility and redress
Megan Bradley
Cambridge University Press, 2013

Voluntary repatriation is now the predominant solution to refugee crises, yet the responsibilities states of origin bear towards their repatriating citizens are under-examined. Through a combination of legal and moral analysis and case studies of the troubled repatriation movements to Guatemala, Bosnia and Mozambique, Megan Bradley develops and refines an original account of the minimum conditions of a ‘just return’ process. The goal of a just return process must be to recast a new relationship of rights and duties between the state and its returning citizens, and the conditions of just return match the core duties states should provide for all their citizens: equal, effective protection for security and basic human rights, including accountability for violations of these rights. This volume evaluates the ways in which different forms of redress such as restitution and compensation may help enable just returns, and traces the emergence and evolution of international norms on redress for refugees.

Resource: Race Ends Where? New e-special of Sociology

Race Ends Where?

Launched on Monday 18th November, this new e-special issue of Sociology surveys the contemporary study of race. With the benefit of previously published articles in Sociology supported by correspondence from article authors, we make the argument for sociologies of race that go beyond surface level reconstructions, and which challenge sociologists to reflect on how their discipline is presently configured. What the suite of papers in this collection shows is both the resilience of race as a construct for organising social relations and the slippery fashion in which ideas of race have shifted, transmuted and pluralised. It is in a spirit of recognising continuity and change that we present this collection. Some of the papers already stand as landmark essays, while others exemplify key moments in the broader teleology of race studies. This includes articles that explore the ontological ground upon which ideas of race, citizenship and black identity have been fostered and the need to develop a global sociology that is critically reflexive of its western orientation. The theme of continuity and change can be seen in papers that showcase intersectional approaches to race, where gender, nationality, generation and class offer nuanced readings of everyday life, alongside the persistence of institutional forms of discrimination. The range and complexity of these debates not only reflect the vitality of race in the contemporary period but lead us to ask not so much if race ends here, but where?

The Journal on Migration and Human Security, a publication of the Center for Migration Studies, announces the release of a new article: “Citizen or Subordinate: Permutations of Belonging in the United States and the Dominican Republic”, by Shaina Aber, Jesuit Conference of the United States and Mary Small, Jesuit Refugee Service/USA.

Birthright citizenship regimes are common in the Americas. However, birthright citizenship has been hotly contested in the United States and the Dominican Republic. In the Dominican Republic, the historical construction of national identity and anti-Haitian discourse has motivated a shift in law to deny citizenship to Dominican-born children of Haitian descent. In the United States, proposals to revoke birthright citizenship for the children of unauthorized immigrants stand little chance of success, but have nonetheless shifted the parameters of the immigration debate. The DREAMers in the United States and youth movements in the Dominican Republic seek to broaden concepts of societal belonging and membership, which may be the most effective way to safeguard birthright citizenship regimes.

Ethnography, diversity and urban space – Special Issue of Identities.Global Studies in Culture and Power

Special issue of Identities: Global studies in culture and power on ‘Ethnography, Diversity and Urban Space’, co-edited by Mette Louise Berg (COMPAS and ISCA, University of Oxford), Ben Gidley (COMPAS, University of Oxford) and Nando Sigona (IRiS, University of Birmingham).

This special issue is a substantial contribution to the growing scholarly literature on ‘diversity’, containing an introductory essay by Berg and Sigona which places the ‘diversity turn’ within studies of migration and multiculture historically and discusses the implications of concepts such as ‘diversity’ and more recently ‘super-diversity’ for scholarship, policy and identity politics. The collection includes also seven ethnographic articles (Gidley, Schmoll and Semi, Rhys-Taylor, Wessendorf, Rogaly and Qureshi, Jensen, and Meier) and an epilogue (Fog-Olwig). The collection argues that diversity is a helpful concept for studies of migration and multiculture because it avoids the essentialism and bias towards ethnic affiliation often characterising studies within the multiculturalism framework, while being more grounded locally than studies within the transnationalism framework. It examines the methodological implications of increasing diversity and complexity on ethnographic studies and the definition of the ‘field’. It makes the point that increasing urban diversity poses a challenge to ethnographic ideals of ‘immersion’ and wholeness.

FMR 44 now online – Detention, alternatives to detention, and deportation – plus Syria crisis mini-feature

Forced Migration Review issue 44, entitled ‘Detention, alternatives to detention, and deportation’, is now online at www.fmreview.org/detention

Asylum seekers and refugees – men, women and even children – are increasingly detained and interned around the world, as are numbers of other migrants. Sometimes detained indefinitely and often in appalling conditions, they may suffer not only deprivation of their liberty but other abuses of their human rights too. Detention may appear to be a convenient solution to states’ political quest to manage migration (often as a precursor to deportation) but it is an expensive option and has lasting effects on those detained. In the search for a more humane – and cheaper – approach, agencies and government authorities have trialled a variety of alternatives to detention.

FMR 44 includes 36 articles on immigration detention, alternatives to detention, and deportation, plus a mini-feature on the Syria crisis and a selection of other articles.

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

FMR 44 will be available online and in print in English, French, Spanish and Arabic.

An expanded contents listing for this issue is available at www.fmreview.org/detention/FMR44listing.pdf
