The region of Latin America and the Caribbean has long demonstrated hospitality towards those fleeing conflict and persecution within the region and from further afield. Faced with newer causes of displacement, such as the violence of organised criminal gangs and the adverse effects of climate change, Latin American and Caribbean countries are continuing to expand and adapt their protection laws and mechanisms in order to address these and other situations of displacement and to meet the differing needs of affected populations. This issue contains 31 articles on Latin America and the Caribbean, plus five ‘general’ articles on other topics.
This issue of FMR will be available online and in print in English, Spanish, Arabic and French. The English versions of articles are also available in audio format.
Also available is the FMR 56 digest for easy online access to all the articles published in FMR 56. It provides for each article: the title, the author(s) and their affiliation, the introductory sentences and links to the full article online.

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? We would welcome the opportunity to discuss this. Please contact the Editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
