Forced Migration Review
Forced Migration Review (FMR) is the most widely read publication on refugees, internally displaced people and stateless people.
In 1987, at the request of a group of researchers and UNHCR and NGO representatives, the Refugee Studies Centre at Oxford University started publishing a newsletter to provide a forum for discussion between researchers and practitioners. Over the years it has grown into an internationally respected magazine published approximately three times a year in English, French, Spanish and Arabic, with a distribution list for the printed version of over 15,000 plus an ever-growing online readership.
In November 2012 FMR launched its 25th Anniversary collection of articles, looking back over 25 years of debate, learning and advocacy for the rights of displaced and stateless people. For more information please visit www.fmreview.org/25th-anniversary
FMR aims to:
- bring together research, policy and practice;
- provide a forum for the voices of displaced people;
- highlight lesser known (or less covered) displacement crises;
- promote wider public knowledge of, and respect for, international refugee and human rights law.
FMR enables people around the world to learn about issues of current and emerging concern relating to refugees, displaced people and stateless people, bringing together experience and analysis, ideas and perspectives, lessons and recommendations for action.
FMR has an enormously diverse readership: researchers, students, government ministers, displaced people, UN staff, NGO and civil society representatives, human rights campaigners, journalists... and the majority of readers live and work in the ‘Global South’. This diversity is also reflected in the range of authors of articles.
FMR is neutral and impartial, without ties to any agency agendas or political viewpoints, and is committed to the rights and protection of forced migrants of all kinds.
FMR is online at www.fmreview.org in pdf and html in all four languages, and in audio format in English. Its availability free of charge in print as well as online is key to its accessibility by people all over the world in countries and contexts where internet access is still limited or non-existent, expensive and/or slow.
FMR’s 2012-13 budget – for production, distribution and staff costs – is approximately £240,000 / US$420,000 / €336,000. We are entirely dependent on external grants and donations to cover all these costs. All donors are acknowledged in each issue of FMR, on our website and on associated promotional materials.
