Education is one of the most important aspects of our lives – vital to our development, our understanding and our personal and professional fulfilment throughout life. In times of crisis, however, millions of displaced young people miss out on months or years of education, and this is damaging to them and their families, as well as to their societies, both in the short and long term. This issue of FMR includes 29 articles on Education, and two ‘general’ articles.
This issue of FMR will be available online and in print in English, Arabic, Spanish and French.
Podcasts: The articles are available (in English) in audio/podcast format - see link above under 'Reading and download options'.
Editors’ briefing: provides an overview of the content of the feature theme on Education, with hyperlinks to articles – available in English, Arabic, Spanish and French (A4 format)
Digest: presents a listing of all articles published in FMR 60, including article title, author(s) and affiliation, introductory sentences and links to the article online – available in English, Arabic and Spanish, but not French (A5 format)
If you are printing off the magazine or digest, 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 60 www.fmreview.org/education-displacement.
Requesting copies: If you would like to receive a print copy of any of the above, or if you require multiple copies for distribution to partners and policy/decision makers or for use at conferences/workshops, please contact the Editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Could FMR support your funding bid?
FMR has on occasion been included in successful programmatic and research funding bids, to the mutual benefit of all parties. If your organisation is applying (or is part of a consortium applying) for external funding, would you consider including FMR in your proposal narrative and budget, to support the dissemination of learning and results on your particular subject matter – and thereby potentially to boost impact and policy engagement? We would welcome the opportunity to discuss this. Please contact the Editors at email@example.com.
