New Issues of FMR and JRS

Two new issues of periodicals affiliated with the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC) are now available:

Forced Migration Review, no. 43 (May 2013) [open access text]

- "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 'general articles' on other aspects of displacement."

Note:  A call for papers has been issued for FMR's Dec. 2013 edition that will focus on "crisis migration."
