Being young and out of place: new issue of Forced Migration Review
Forced Migration Review issue 40, entitled ‘Being young and out of place’, is available online now at www.fmreview.org/young-and-out-of-place
Young people from their early teenage years to their late twenties may be particularly susceptible to being physically and socially ‘out of place’ during this period of their lives. The 26 articles in the theme section of FMR 40 examine the stresses of ‘being young and out of place’, explore young people’s needs and coping strategies, and ask why relatively little attention is paid to their rights and needs.
This issue also includes nine articles about disparate aspects of forced migration: new research findings on protracted displacement, refugee-run information services, ‘tolerated stay’, psychosocial resilience, resettlement of refugees in Argentina, mental health in Lebanese refugee camps, national IDP policies in Afghanistan and Nigeria – and why some issues make it onto the international agenda while others do not.
FMR 40 will be available online in English, French, Spanish and Arabic.
