  • Disasters and displacement in a changing climate
    • Authors: FMR
      Abstract: FMR 49 May 2015 In light of the projected increase in the frequency and intensity of disasters associated with climate change, the number of people displaced in the context of disasters will inevitably rise. Existing national, regional and international legal regimes, however, currently respond to only some of the protection concerns arising from such displacement. Crafting an appropriate response will demand a cross-sectoral approach that addresses different forms of human mobility and which also recognises the local knowledge, values and beliefs of affected communities. FMR 49 includes 36 articles on ‘Disasters and displacement in a changing climate’, five articles on ‘Female genital mutilation (FGM) and asylum in Europe’, and five ‘general’ articles. This issue of FMR is available online in English in pdf, html and audio formats, and will be available 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 (pictured right, under the full issue image). 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 is available online and in print in English, French, Spanish and Arabic. Mini-feature on female genital mutilation – available as separate PDF (pictured right): This FMR mini-feature addresses some of the issues relating to the practice of FGM in respect of asylum. The focus is on asylum in Europe in particular, and this mini-feature has been produced in collaboration with UNHCR’s Bureau for Europe. However, it is obvious – and right – that the implications are applicable beyond the borders of Europe. This 12-page mini-feature is also available (in English) as a stand-alone pdf at www.fmreview.org/climatechange-disasters/FGM.pdf; French, Spanish and Arabic versionswill follow; please visit www.fmreview.org/climatechange-disasters and click on the appropriate language tab. We encourage you to use and disseminate it widely. Please note that FMR is published in A5 format (half of A4). In order to print it out properly, please use your printer’s ‘Booklet’ setting. The Listing is A4 format. read more

  • Faith and responses to displacement
    • Authors: Sharon
      Abstract: FMR 48 November 2014 The role of faith in the humanitarian sector is not easy to measure. Faiths generally advocate welcoming the stranger and there are many organisations and individuals inspired by their faith or religion to provide protection and assistance. Yet it is easier to measure the activities inspired by faith than to measure the difference that having that faith makes, and secularly inspired standards for such activities can appear to be in tension with the faith inspiration. FMR 48 includes 36 articles on ‘Faith’ plus seven ‘general’ articles. This issue of FMR is available online in English in pdf, html and audio formats, and 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 (pictured right, under the full issue image). 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 is 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

  • The Syria crisis, displacement and protection
    • Authors: Sharon
      Abstract: FMR 47 September 2014 There are now 9.5 million people displaced by the Syria crisis. The numbers of displaced people in Syria make this the largest IDP crisis in the world, and possibly also the largest number of people who are ‘trapped’. Meanwhile, the number of refugees from Syria continues to increase. The authors of the 20 articles in this issue offer observations that could be of value in increasing the level of protection for the displaced and in shaping assistance to both the displaced and the countries and communities that are ‘hosting’ them. The issue will be online shortly (2nd September).
