However, there are alternatives.

  • 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…

      Abstract: FMR 42 April 2013 Around the world, people face abuse, arbitrary arrest, extortion, violence, severe discrimination and lack of official protection because of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. This latest issue of FMR includes 26 articles on the abuse of rights of forced migrants who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex.

  • Preventing displacement
    • Authors: Sharon
      Abstract: FMR 41 December 2012 Preventing displacement is obviously a worthwhile objective. Being 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. FMR 41 includes a major feature on ‘Preventing displacement’ plus a range of articles on other subjects such as North Koreans in China, East Africans adapting to the UK, the Rohingya, slum evictions in Tanzania, the Nansen Initiative and a new methodology for assessing the costs and impacts of displacement. This issue of FMR is available online in English in pdf, html and audio formats, and will be available online in French, Spanish and Arabic in html. Please note that, for financial reasons, it will be available in print in English only. We do apologise for any inconvenience, and expect issues of FMR in 2013 to be printed in all four languages. Meanwhile, please share the links to the French, Arabic and Spanish sections of our website with any colleagues who might find them useful. FMR41 Listing is a 4-sided expanded contents listing of all articles in this issue of FMR. It 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 IN ALL LANGUAGES, and available in print in English and Spanish. Requesting copies If you do NOT usually receive a print copy (of FMR or FMR Listing) and would like to receive a copy for your organisation, or if you require multiple copies for distribution to partners and policy/decisionmakers or for use at conferences/workshops, please contact the Editors at fmr@qeh.ox.ac.uk  (Please note that we prefer to provide the shorter Listing if large numbers are required for conferences and training.) If you would like print copies of the full issue, and could make a contribution (perhaps £30 / $50) to the cost, please donate online at www.giving.ox.ac.uk/fmr  This will help enable us to keep on producing FMR in print.

  • Forced Migration Review – 25th Anniversary collection
    • Authors: Sharon
      Abstract: November 2012 The FMR 25th Anniversary collection of articles will look back over 25 years of debate, learning and advocacy for the rights of displaced and stateless people, and consider where we are now in relation to many of the themes covered by FMR. We are inviting a selection of former guest editors, authors and donors to write on developments, lessons, challenges, gaps – and their thoughts about the future for displaced people and our sector. The collection of articles will build up gradually. Each new article will be posted online and publicised individually; click on link above for individual articles published to date. Later in 2013 we will combine all the articles into a full anniversary issue which will be available online and for downloading. In November 1987 the first issue of a newsletter was published by the Refugee Studies Centre in response to a call for a forum for information exchange between researchers and practitioners. That newsletter, originally called the Refugee Participation Network newsletter, became Forced Migration Review and is still going strong today, 25 years later. FMR is now published in four languages and is read around the world at all levels of the international research and humanitarian communities and by many displaced people. Since 1987, we have published some 78 issues and supplements. The contents of the 25th Anniversary collection will be diverse in style and approach. Writers may present an overview of the changes over 25 years, a view of where we are in 2012/2013, or a major objective for their field and their vision of how to achieve it. Others may present one vivid story from the field, a key moment or a revealing insight. If you too would like to contribute to the collection, please email us with details of your proposed contribution, and we will be happy to consider it. We welcome pictures and cartoons as well as words. If you would like to be notified when a new article goes online, please sign up for our email alerts at www.fmreview.org/request/alerts We would like to thank all those who have read, written for and supported FMR/RPN over the years.
