New Web Resources

UNHCR's Policy Development and Evaluation Service (PDES) has revived its dormant Facebook page. All PDES reports can now be accessed from the page, which also includes recent posts on incentive payments for refugees, alternatives to refugee camps, assisted voluntary return programmes, and an internship opportunity.

Other new sites/blogs:

Country of Origin Research and Information Centre (CORI) [access]
- New web site for "an independent centre providing specialist research to support refugee status determination."

Forced Migration Research Hub [access]
- Hosted by Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne; "provides a space to generate dialogue, drive research agendas, inspire collaborations and also to share research tools, resources and outcomes." Focus is on Asia Pacific.

Forced Migration Review [access]
- Check out FMR's newly re-designed site, with enhanced access to issues and articles.

Justice Matters in Africa [access]
- The International Refugee Rights Initiative's blog; aim is to "make connections between conversations that often fail to connect – between issues of citizenship, forced migration, governance, the politics of inclusion and exclusion, international criminal justice, local understandings of justice, transitional justice, land rights, mass atrocity... ."

Know Reset [access]
- New web site for a project that "aims to map and analyse legal and policy frameworks, as well actual practices related to refugee resettlement in the 27 EU Member States."
