Welcome

Barbara Harrell-Bond 1932-2018: It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Dr Barbara Harrell-Bond, OBE, Emerita Professor, on 11th July 2018. Barbara founded the Refugee Studies Centre in 1982 – and launched Forced Migration Review (then known as the Refugee Participation Network newsletter) five years later. We are proud to carry on her work and her commitment to upholding the rights of refugees. The Refugee Studies Centre has published a statement on her death.

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.

When people are forced to leave their homes, they usually also leave behind their means of economic activity. In their new location, they may not be able, or permitted, to work. This has wide-ranging implications. This issue includes 22 articles on the main feature theme of Economies: rights and access to work. It also includes two ‘mini-features’, one on Refugee-led social protection and one on Humans and animals in refugee camps.

What is forced migration?
‘Forced migration’ refers to the movements of refugees and internally displaced people (displaced by conflict) as well as people displaced by natural or environmental disasters, chemical or nuclear disasters, famine, or development projects.
