Subject: [FORCED-MIGRATION] Call for Papers: Oxford Monitor of Forced
Migration

Call for Papers Vol. 1 No. 2
- Field Monitor - Law Monitor - Policy Monitor - First Hand - Academic 
Articles -

OxMo, the student journal dedicated to protecting and advancing the 
human rights of forced migrants, is currently accepting submissions for 
our second issue which will be published in September 2011. Closing date 
for submissions is 24 June 2011. For further details on how to submit 
click here. To see our first issue click here.

Monitor Sections

For the Field, Law and Policy Monitor sections, we are seeking short 
articles that engage with pressing issues that affect the day-to-day 
lives of forced migrants - be they legal, social or political issues at 
the local, national or international level. Examples include assessments 
of projects and policies of international organizations, NGOs and 
governments; articles that expose human rights violations; and 
authoritative accounts of conditions in refugee camps or detention 
centres. We also seek submissions that offer examples of best practice. 
Such articles may explore innovative undertakings and advancements 
geared towards countering forced migration predicaments.

More specifically, in the Field Monitor section, we are interested in 
hearing from those of you who have had direct experience with forced 
migrants-including but not limited to your work or research in the 
field, e.g. in camps, or your engagement with forced migrants in your 
local community.

For the Policy Monitor we are seeking critical analyses of current and 
emerging policies and practises undertaken by governments, NGOs and UN 
organisations that pertain to forced migration situations or forced 
migrants in times of displacement, asylum, return or resettlement.

In the Law Monitor we welcome analyses of national and international 
laws, rulings, government policies and practises as well as legal 
developments taking shape and their possible implications for the rights 
of forced migrants.

Submissions to the Monitor sections may take the form of an article, an 
essay, a critique, a discussion or a report and should be no longer than 
1500 words. Monitor submissions should be short, to the point and informal.

The Monitor sections are open to current students and recent graduates.
First Hand Section

The First Hand section encourages anyone who has been displaced to 
submit articles reflecting on their personal experiences. First Hand 
presents an opportunity to those directly affected by the policies, laws 
and activities of governments and the agencies we monitor to express 
their insights and perspectives. This may take the form of a discussion 
of particular problem that has not been given due attention or 
commentary on government policies in a specific country, region or locale.

We seek critical, balanced analyses that allow the reader to gain an 
understanding of the context in which the report is written and that 
engages with wider implications of the situation described.

Articles for First Hand should be no longer than 1500 words. At present 
we are only able to accept written submissions in English. However, in 
effort to make the section as accessible as possible we are also 
accepting multimedia submissions such as videos, photos and spoken word 
pieces. Accompanying the multimedia submission should be a short blurb 
of no more than 300 words about the author and the piece itself. Please 
note that videos, audio recordings and photos must be sent as an 
attachment in a zipped file not exceeding 25 MB.

First Hand is open to all persons who have been or are currently displaced.
Academic Articles Section

The Academic Articles section provides a space for thorough scholarship 
and serves as a forum for students to engage critically with practical 
and conceptual issues relating to forced migration. In the Academic 
Articles section we seek submissions that interrogate the existing 
literature on forced migration, present in-depth research in a given 
area or offer original insights into a situation or trend.

As we recognize and value the multidisciplinary nature of Forced 
Migration Studies, we encourage submissions from across various academic 
disciplines-including but not limited to political science, law, 
anthropology, ethics and philosophy, sociology, economics and media studies.

Submissions to the Academic Articles must not exceed 6000 words 
(including footnotes, which should be kept to a minimum).

The Academic Articles section is open to current students and recent 
graduates.
Closing date for submissions is 24th June 2011
