RSC marks World Refugee Day with launch of new issue of Forced Migration Review
Forced Migration Review issue 39, entitled ‘North Africa and displacement 2011-2012’, is now online at www.fmreview.org/north-africa
As this issue goes to print, the so-called Arab Spring continues to reverberate locally, regionally and geopolitically. It started in early 2011 and spread across North Africa, with well-documented consequences far further afield in Africa and Europe. The conflict in Libya in particular confronted aid and protection actors with complex situations where people were moving for diverse reasons and facing distinct needs.
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 includes introductions by High Commissioner António Guterres and IOM Director General William Lacy Swing.
FMR 39 will be published in English, Arabic and French.
