As the in-house publication of the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC), FMR is a key part of the RSC’s dissemination and outreach activities.
The Refugee Studies Centre was founded in 1982 as part of the Oxford Department of International Development (Queen Elizabeth House) at the University of Oxford. The RSC’s purpose is to build knowledge and understanding of the causes and effects of forced migration in order to help improve the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable people.
Three decades after its establishment, the study of forced migration has become a recognised academic discipline, embraced by numerous educational institutions across the world. The need for independent, objective and critical scholarship on factors determining and resulting from the forced displacement of populations has never been greater, and the Refugee Studies Centre remains in the forefront of shaping the agenda in today’s most critical debates.
