Welcome

Forced Migration Review (FMR) is the most widely read publication on forced migration – available in English, French, Spanish and Arabic, and free of charge in print and online. It is published by the Refugee Studies Centre in the Oxford Department of International Development, University of Oxford. Through FMR, authors from around the world analyse the causes and impacts of displacement; debate policies and programmes; share research findings; reflect the lived experience of displacement; and present examples of good practice and recommendations for policy and action.

On this site you can read FMR online in four languages in various formats, request email alerts and print copies, and find calls for articles for forthcoming themes.

We have now gathered together the individual articles in our 25th Anniversary collection into a single pdf www.fmreview.org/25th-anniversary

September 2014

The 6.45 million displaced people inside Syria make this the largest IDP crisis in the world, with possibly also the largest number of people who are ‘trapped’. In addition, the number of refugees from Syria continues to increase. The international community has an opportunity to set up, from now, an effective response to what will clearly become protracted displacement. These 20 articles discuss how to increase protection for the displaced and how to shape assistance to both the displaced and their ‘hosts’.

September 10th: launch of FMR 47 'The Syria crisis, displacement and protection', together with the launch of the RSC Policy Brief 'Protection in Europe for refugees from Syria'. At 14.30 at the Refugee Studies Centre in Oxford. Further details at www.rsc.ox.ac.uk/syrialaunch
