This section provides a forum for students to explore practical and conceptual issues pertaining to forced migration. Submissions must engage with and interrogate existing literature on forced migration, present in-depth research in a given area, and offer original insights into a situation or trend. As OxMo recognises and values the multidisciplinary nature of Forced Migration Studies, we encourage submissions from across 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 6,000 words (including footnotes).
This section encourages individuals to share personal reflections on experience(s) of displacement, presenting the opportunity to those directly affected by the laws, policies and activities of governments and agencies we monitor to give expression to their insights and perspectives. 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 1,500 words.
The closing date for submissions is **30 July 2012 **
