Oxford Monitor of Forced Migration


The Oxford Monitor of Forced Migration (OxMo) is an independent, student run publication, supported by the RSC, that moves to engage with various aspects of forced migration through academic scholarship. OxMo is dedicated to protecting and advancing human rights of individuals who have been forcibly displaced. By monitoring political, legal and practical developments, we seek to draw attention to the plight of forced migrants, identify gaps within existing international and national protection regimes and engage with the many practical and conceptual concerns which perpetuate displacement.

The series reflects the multidisciplinary nature of the field and includes within its scope international law, anthropology, sociology, politics, international relations, geopolitics, social psychology and economics.
