News: Free "Journal of Peace Research" Issue

A special issue of the Journal of Peace Research has been published, focusing on "refugees, forced migration, and conflict." The introductory article "describes the evolution of the international refugee regime and identifies theoretical and methodological advances in the relevant literature. It concludes with a discussion of the individual contributions to the issue, which seek to address gaps in the literature with respect to explaining motivations for refugee departures, understanding the relationship between refugee populations and political instability in host countries, and tracking public attitudes towards hosting refugee populations."

Articles are freely available until 1 March 2019 (although note the open access article will remain freely available!):
