Refugee Review and the New Scholars Network (NSN)

The New Scholars Network is pleased to announce a call for submissions for the second volume of the Refugee Review. The Refugee Review, a publication of the New Scholars Network, is an open-access, peer-reviewed e-journal that features a range of submission styles as contributed by scholars, practitioners, activists, and those working and studying within the field of forced migration. The Refugee Review platform, based at no particular institution and tied to no particular location, offers a unique publishing opportunity for those in the early stages of their work and careers, as well as for established scholars that support this mission. Those who submit can expect dialogue with the NSN's e-journal team throughout the publishing process, and are encouraged to work with the NSN to strengthen and promote the e-journal in the spirit of open scholarship and collaboration.
 
2014 Call for Submissions

The traditional definition of the refugee or forced migrant, as a category in forced migration studies and refugee law, has been steadily evolving. Push-pull factors have diversified. Asylum may be granted or denied regionally according to varying protocols and lack thereof. Calls for protections and supports for those that seek asylum have been both heralded and questioned in response to forced migration situations that the 21st century has created and inherited. 
 
The realization that complex and overlapping factors influence the shape of migration prompts this call for a discussion of the evolving 'category' of refugee from a range of knowledgeable perspectives. Those that seek solutions for displacement situations must understand the nature and context of each particular and interrelated situation in order to react appropriately, combining the agency of forced migrants, NGOs, governments, and other bodies.

As refugees continue to flow across boundaries and borders, they contend with conceptualizations that not only attempt to define their lived experience but also directly and continually redefine their legal status and rights. For this reason, this call places the  'category'  of refugee at the centre of its conversation, in order to 1) discuss the ways in which the refugee experience has been and can be reconceptualized in both theory and practice, and 2) what changes such a reconceptualization can effect. 
 
The following focal questions may inform submissions for this volume: In what ways can the refugee and forced migrant be reconceptualized based on contemporary lived experiences? What new parameters, if any, are being established in the broadening of the definition of the refugee or forced migrant, and to what end? Do contemporary policies and regional practices challenge the legal definition of Convention refugee status? Who is, and has been, entitled to define 'the refugee," and why? How do we define the contemporary ethics of response to varied forced migration situations-from societal violence to environmental degradation, from responses to extraterritorialization to enacting durable solutions? What is the role of refugees in demonstrating their experience and leading or contributing to new responses to forced migration situations? What is the role of researchers and practitioners in the same? 
 

Submission Categories:
 
We recognize and value the multidisciplinary nature of forced migration studies, and therefore encourage submissions from across various disciplines-including but not limited to political science, law, anthropology, ethics and philosophy, sociology, economics, public health, and media studies. You may submit to any submission category listed below, regardless of where you locate your study or practice. 
 
Please identify which submission category your piece is being submitted under. We encourage you to consider the range of submission styles available in this Call for Submissions during the development of your piece and structure/develop your submission accordingly. 
 
Submissions will go through a peer-review process and those selected will go through a peer-editing process before publication. The editing team may, when deemed appropriate, move your piece so a different submission section (for example from the Academic Article section to the Opinion Piece section) if they feel it is better suited to another category.
 
Academic Articles:

The Academic Articles section provides a space for thorough scholarship and serves as a forum for authors to engage critically with practical and theoretical 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. Submissions to the Academic Articles must not exceed 6000 words (including footnotes, which should be kept to a minimum). Articles are required to use Chicago style endnotes.   
 
Opinion Papers and Practitioner Reports:

Opinion Papers and Practitioner Reports may be contributions that reflect on personal experiences of displacement as well as and reports from non-governmental organization (NGO) and CBO staff. This section presents an opportunity for those directly affected by the policies, laws and activities of governments and the agencies we evaluate 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 the Opinion and Report Section should be approximately 2000 words and no more than 5000 words. At present we are only able to accept written submissions in English.
 
Multimedia Submissions:

Multimedia submissions may include, but are not limited to: videos, photos, artwork and spoken word pieces. Accompanying the multimedia submission should be a short blurb of approximately 300 words about the author and the piece itself. PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE PERMISSION TO PHOTOGRAPH OR VIDEO THE SUBJECT(S) YOU SUBMIT. Please note that videos, audio recordings, and photos must be sent as an attachment in a zipped file not exceeding 25 MB.  Videos may also be submitted as links if they are also hosted privately on Vimeo or YouTube.
