New Issue of FMR & Seminar Series


The latest issue of Forced Migration Review (FMR) has been published.  The theme of FMR51 is "Destination: Europe." Here is the description:
"Europe is experiencing the mass movements of displaced people in a way that it has largely been immune from for decades. The manifestations of the ‘migration crisis’ are as disparate as the building of fences to stop people crossing normally peaceful borders, the deaths of people transported by smugglers in unseaworthy boats, EU political leaders bickering over a Common European Asylum System and the numbers they will or will not allow into their respective countries, and contentious responses to the disaster that continues to unfold in Syria. Alongside this we also see an upsurge of grass-roots compassion, solidarity and assistance to those whose human suffering on a grand scale in and around Europe constitutes the reality behind the rhetoric. FMR 51 includes 43 articles on ‘Destination: Europe’, plus five ‘general’ articles."

FMR is an open access publication. It is available online and in print in English, Arabic, French and Spanish.  Audio versions of articles are also available in English.

FMR is also conducting a reader survey. To participate, follow this link to complete a form on Google Docs.
