  • Crisis
    • Authors: Sharon
      Abstract: FMR 45 February 2014 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 articles on crisis, migration and displacement, and eight general articles on other subjects relating to forced migration. This issue of FMR is available online in English in pdf, html and audio formats, and will shortly be available online in French, Spanish and Arabic in html and pdf formats. It will be available in print in all four languages. A four-sided expanded contents listing of all articles in this issue of FMR is also available. This provides for each article: the title, the author(s) and their affiliation, the introductory sentences and a link to the full article online. It will be available online and in print in English, French, Spanish and Arabic. Please note that FMR is now A5 format (half of A4). In order to print it out properly, please use your printer’s ‘Booklet’ setting. The Listing is still A4 format. Requesting copies

  • States of fragility
    • Authors: Sharon
      Abstract: FMR 43 May 2013 Many states fail in their responsibilities to their citizens but those states which are fragile, failed or weak are particularly liable to render their citizens vulnerable. This latest issue of FMR includes 24 articles on fragile states and displacement, going behind the definitions, typologies and indicators to explore some of the concepts and realities, looking at a variety of cases and discussing some of the humanitarian and development responses. In addition this issue contains eight further articles on other aspects of displacement – Syrians in Lebanon, older displaced people, use of human rights treaties for asylum seekers, arts in refugee camps, and more. Coming shortly…
