Forced Migration Forum (Zolberg Institute & Yale Law School) [access]
- Aim of this blog is to "to provide a place for debate on the core assumptions and concepts of our field; to encourage researchers to post and discuss their work (and spark a discussion about the research findings and their relevance); and to serve a 'translation' function, bringing research to policy-thinkers and makers in a way that is useful to them."

Program on Refugees, Forced Displacement, and Humanitarian Responses (Yale University) [access]
- Provides "an intellectual hub for research, teaching, and policy recommendations that takes a people-centered approach to the refugee experience – from internal displacement at home, to the transit experience inside and outside the camp, to challenges of resettlement and integration. Acting as a catalyst for innovation, it will be open to new and unconventional ideas of research or public outreach. Rigorous, inter-disciplinary, evidence-based research will be conducted and linked to policy and practice."
