The so-called Arab Spring continues to reverberate locally, regionally and geopolitically. The 20 articles in this issue of FMR reflect on some of the experiences, challenges and lessons of the Arab Spring in North Africa, the implications of which resonate far wider than the region itself.
This issue of FMR will be published in English, Arabic and French.
We encourage you to circulate or reproduce any articles in their entirety but please cite Forced Migration Review issue 39 www.fmreview.org/north-africa
FMR39 Listing is a 2-sided expanded contents listing of all articles in this issue of FMR. It provides for each article: the title, the author(s) and their affiliation, the introductory sentences and a link to the full article online. It is available in print as well as online, in English, Arabic and French.
If you do NOT usually receive a print copy (of FMR or FMR Listing) and would like to receive a copy for your organisation, or 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 We will need your full postal address and details of how many copies (in which language/s) you require.
While we want to share the contents of this issue as widely as possible, we ask you to think carefully about how many print copies you need; please remember that it is available online, that print copies can be shared, and that printing and postage use up more resources than just money. We prefer to offer the Listing if multiple copies are required for conferences and training.
If you would like print copies of the full issue, and could make a contribution to the cost, please donate online at www.giving.ox.ac.uk/fmr This will help enable us to keep on producing FMR in print.
