A few new blogs...

The Women's Refugee Commission has been active on the social media front, but did not have a blog until recently - May 17th to be exact! Their aim is to "talk more in depth about our various programs and the findings we uncover through our work and research." One post was provided by a guest blogger, Deo Niyizonkiza, a refugee from Burundi whose story was recently told in Tracy Kidder's Strength in What Remains.

The HJT Training Immigration Blog started up in March, in order "to keep readers up to date with the latest legal developments in [UK] immigration and asylum law." Their side bar includes listings of immigration cases and news from the UK Border Agency.

You don't often see blogs set up for conferences in the forced migration community. However, one has been launched in advance of "Double Jeopardy: An international conference on the issues facing lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex asylum seekers and refugees," scheduled for 6-7 July 2010. In the interim, you can follow headlines in the sidebar for postings to the LGBT Asylum News and Persian Gay and Lesbian Liberators (PGLL) blogs.
