Forced Migration Review issue 41, entitled ‘Preventing displacement’, is now online

Forced Migration Review issue 41, entitled ‘Preventing displacement’, is now online at


FMR 41Being displaced puts people at a higher risk of being both impoverished and unable to enjoy their human rights. Such a situation is worth preventing – but not at any cost. The 23 articles in the theme section of FMR 41 address the causes of displacement, look at how to manage situations that might cause displacement so as to make staying a better option, and examine the legal and institutional context within which all this occurs.

This issue also includes ten articles about other aspects of forced migration.

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

FMR 41 will be available online in English, French, Spanish and Arabic – but will be available in print in English only. We deeply regret this but currently have insufficient funding to print it in all four of our usual languages.

We would be grateful if you would forward this message to anyone you know who may be interested, Tweet about it, add links to the issue from your website and/or list it in your updates and resources. When adding links, please link to the web page www.fmreview.org/preventing

An expanded contents Listing for this issue – called FMR41 Listing – is available at www.fmreview.org/preventing/FMR41listing.pdf  This includes an introduction to the feature theme, followed by – for each article – the title, author’s name and affiliation, introductory sentences, and the link to the article online. It will be available online in all languages but in print in English only.

If you require multiple copies of FMR41 and/or of FMR41 Listing, please email us immediately at fmr@qeh.ox.ac.uk

If you do NOT usually receive a print copy of FMR and would like to receive a copy of FMR 41 or FMR41 Listing for your organisation, or multiple copies for distribution to partners and policy/decisionmakers or for use at conferences/workshops, please contact the Editors as soon as possible.

We would like to thank Dina Abou Samra and Simon Bagshaw (UNOCHA) and Josep Zapater (UNHCR) for their invaluable assistance as special advisors on this issue’s feature theme. We are also very grateful to the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, UNOCHA, Lex Justi and Refugees International for their funding support for this issue.

Forthcoming issues of FMR will include features on:

·         Sexual orientation and gender identity and protection of forced migrants

·         Fragile states
