Forced Migration Review issue 40, entitled ‘Being young and out of place’, is now online at
Web Link: www.fmreview.org/young-and-out-of-place
Full list of contents, with links to all articles, is given below.
Young people from their early teenage years to their late twenties may be particularly susceptible to being physically and socially ‘out of place’ during this period of their lives. The 26 articles in the theme section of FMR 40 examine the stresses of ‘being young and out of place’, explore young people’s needs and coping strategies, and ask why relatively little attention is paid to their rights and needs.
This issue also includes nine articles about disparate aspects of forced migration: new research findings on protracted displacement, refugee-run information services, ‘tolerated stay’, psychosocial resilience, resettlement of refugees in Argentina, mental health in Lebanese refugee camps, national IDP policies in Afghanistan and Nigeria – and why some issues make it onto the international agenda while others do not.
FMR 40 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. (If your organisation could help fund the printing and dissemination for one of the other language editions, please do get in touch with us as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org)

It will be available online in all languages but in print in English only (and possibly Spanish).
