Forced Migration Review issue 46, entitled ‘Afghanistan’s displaced people: 2014 and beyond’, is now online at www.fmreview.org/afghanistan
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 International military forces are being withdrawn and the country is ‘in transition’ – politically, economically and in terms of security and its international standing.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.
