FMR 54 Resettlement now online
The latest issue of Forced Migration Review – with a major focus on Resettlement – is now online.
Resettlement is receiving greater prominence not only in light of US President Donald Trump’s recent actions but in the context of the recent surge in numbers of refugees. In the 33 feature theme articles in this latest FMR, authors from around the world look at some of the modalities and challenges of resettlement in order to shed light on debates such as how – and how well – resettlement is managed, whether it is a good use of the funds and energy it uses, and whether it is a good solution for refugees.
This FMR also contains a mini-feature (with four articles) on Post-deportation risks and monitoring plus four articles on other forced migration topics: climate displacement in Bangladesh, asylum seekers’ consumption patterns, refugee and migrant children in Europe, and statelessness in Switzerland.
