Climate crisis and local communities / Trafficking and smuggling / COVID-19: early reflections


This issue of FMR will be available online in English, Arabic, Spanish and French. It will be available in print in English.

Also available:

  • Editors’ briefing: new-look Editors briefing provides headline analysis of the content plus a listing of all articles including links (A4 format, digital and in print)
  • Standalone PDFs of each of the three features, for targeted dissemination (A5 format, digital version only)


Doing your own printing? If you are printing off the magazine or the standalone features, please note that they are published in A5 format (half of A4). In order to print them properly, please use your printer’s ‘Booklet’ setting. (The Editors’ briefing is A4 format.)

Please disseminate this issue as widely as possible by circulating to networks, posting links, mentioning it on Twitter and Facebook and adding it to resources lists. We encourage you to circulate or reproduce any articles in their entirety but please cite: Forced Migration Review issue 64   

IMPORTANT – requesting print copies:

Please note that we are awaiting the lifting of restrictions in more countries before mailing out copies; we will continue to monitor postal services. Please also consider how COVID-19 will affect your need for print copies, including your/your organisation’s ability to physically take delivery of copies.

With the above in mind: If you would like to receive a print copy of the magazine or Editors’ briefing, or if you require multiple copies for distribution to partners and policy/decisionmakers or for use at conferences/workshops, please contact the Editors at We will need to know how many copies you require of which product and in which language, plus your full postal address. (Note that we prefer to provide the lighter Editors’ briefing to save on print and postage costs, and for environmental reasons.)

We encourage you wherever possible to disseminate FMR digitally, rather than in print.
