Blitz, B.K.; d’Angelo, A.; Kofman, E.; Montagna, N. Health Challenges in Refugee Reception: Dateline Europe 2016. International of Environmental Research and Public Health 2017, 14, 1484. Available online: http://www.mdpi.com/1660-4601/14/12/1484

My name is Lauren Markham - I am a journalist who has spent many years working with and reporting on issues of forced migration. My new book, The Far Away Brothers: Two Young Migrants and the Making of an American Life ( https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/20/books/review-far-away-brothers-lauren-markham.html ), tells the story of twin brothers from El Salvador who escape gang violence and become "unaccompanied minors" in the United States -- a population that, as many of us know, has skyrocketed in recent years. Through the lens of these brothers' journeys, as well as through vignettes told from along the migrant trail and from fulcrums of violence in Central America, this book probes issues of forced migration, youth migration, and migrant integration in the United States.

The REACH Initiative, in collaboration with the Mixed Migration Platform, has recently published a new report on Syrian Migration to Spain between 2015 and 2017. In the new study From Syria to Spain ( http://www.reachresourcecentre.info/system/files/resource-documents/reach_esp_report_mmp_from_syria_to_spain_november_2017_0.pdf ), REACH and the Mixed Migration Platform (MMP), seek to understand which routes Syrians have taken to Spain between 2015 and 2017, why they chose these routes, and why they choose Spain as their entry point to Europe. Additionally, the study seeks to examine security concerns of Syrians along the route and to shed light on their future intentions once in Spain.

IDMC 2017 Africa Report on Internal Displacement http://www.internal-displacement.org/library/publications/2017/africa-report-2017/
Our second report highlights the severity of the continent's displacement crisis. As the world focuses its attention on preventing irregular migration and protecting refugees coming out of Africa, the displacement that happens behind its own borders persists at an alarming rate. Since the beginning of 2017, 2.7 million people have been displaced by conflict, violence or disasters, and have not crossed an international border. 

Published to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the entry into force of the African Union’s Kampala Convention, our report provides new and compelling evidence for action and calls for a new approach to displacement that addresses its causes and longer-term implications, as well as its immediate humanitarian consequences.

IDMC Case Study: Going "home" to displacement - Afghanistan's returnee-IDPs 
Up to half a million Afghans are expected to have returned from Pakistan and Iran back to Afghanistan by the end of this year, with most returning directly into a situation of internal displacement. Afghans who have returned to their country but cannot go back to their area of origin because of violence, known as “returnee-IDPs”, struggle to secure basic living conditions, livelihoods or basic services.

For the last several months, the Norwegian Refugee Council and think-tank Samuel Hall have been carrying out research on the ground, hearing from returnee-IDPs and IDPs on their reintegration needs and the obstacles they face in securing durable solutions. While the broader findings of this research will be launched in January, we are taking the opportunity now to share with you a case study on the specific situation of returnee-IDPs, as part of our Invisible Majority thematic series.

You can read the case study here http://www.internal-displacement.org/assets/publications/2017/20171214-idmc-afghanistan-case-study.pdf
