Forced Migration Review
Invites the submission of articles on the subject of “Displacement in the Middle East” for an issue to be published in February 2018. The Middle East currently is both the source and recipient of the largest numbers of refugees and internally displaced persons globally. While Syria and Yemen are at the core of the largest-scale displacements at the moment (with the Syrian crisis now in its seventh year), there is significant displacement in and from other countries too, as well as situations of protracted displacement throughout the region. Whether they bring costs or opportunities, all those who are displaced are in need of protection. This issue of FMR will look at what can be learned from the region’s experience, the question of responsibility sharing, and the relationship between addressing displacement and securing sustainable peace. It will examine the challenges that need to be met in order to protect internally displaced people, refugees, asylum seekers and stateless people. The editors ask that you send an email to fmr[at]qeh.ox.ac.uk if you are interested in contributing. The deadline for submission of articles is October 23, 2017. For additional information, please see the call for articles.
