Preventing displacement

FMR 41
December 2012

Preventing displacement is obviously a worthwhile objective. Being displaced puts people at a higher risk of being both impoverished and unable to enjoy their human rights. Such a situation is worth preventing – but not at any cost. FMR 41 includes a major feature on ‘Preventing displacement’ plus a range of articles on other subjects such as North Koreans in China, East Africans adapting to the UK, the Rohingya, slum evictions in Tanzania, the Nansen Initiative and a new methodology for assessing the costs and impacts of displacement.

This issue of FMR is available online in English in pdf, html and audio formats, and will be available online in French, Spanish and Arabic in html. Please note that, for financial reasons, it will be available in print in English only. We do apologise for any inconvenience, and expect issues of FMR in 2013 to be printed in all four languages.
