Working Papers: New Titles, Opportunities

Writing opportunities

I posted earlier about some of the activities that have been implemented by the recently established Refugee Law Initiative at the University of London. The RLI has now also launched a Working Paper Series, to which submissions are invited. Criteria for publication are available here.

Likewise, writers are invited to contribute papers to the Global Migration Research Paper Series, published by the Programme for the Study of Global Migration at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies.

More options for publishing working papers used to be available, but a number of series are now defunct (e.g., Forced Migration Studies Programme Working Papers, Refugee Law Project Working Papers, Rosemarie Rogers Working Paper Series, etc.). That said, two longstanding and active series are UNHCR's New Issues in Refugee Research and RSC Working Papers; both accept submissions on an ongoing basis.

New titles

Here are a few titles of new(ish) working papers that I have come across recently:

From 'One Nation, One People' to 'Operation Swaagatem': Bhutanese Refugees in Coquitlam, BC, Working Paper, no. 11-11 (Metropolis British Columbia, Sept. 2011) [text]

The Growing Culture of Exclusion: Trends in Canadian Refugee Exclusions, Working Paper, no. 11-06 (Metropolis British Columbia, June 2011) [text]
