The latest issue of Forced Migration Review is now online, with a major feature on ‘Knowledge, voice and power’ exploring issues of representation, influence, privilege, access, discrimination and more.
People with lived experience of displacement need to be heard. Their perspectives, strategies and solutions should be at the centre of discussions about policy and practice. The authors in this issue reflect on progress made but also on the road still to travel. They challenge attitudes, highlight injustices and make practical recommendations for change.
This feature was produced in partnership with the Local Engagement Refugee Research Network (LERRN) and with the generous financial support of both the International Development Research Centre of the Government of Canada and LERRN (funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council).
The issue also includes a feature on ‘Social cohesion in refugee-hosting contexts’, exploring the role of social cohesion in contexts of protracted displacement, with a particular focus on Kenya and Lebanon. Led by Cory Rodgers, this section draws on the research of the project Social Cohesion as a Humanitarian Objective? (SoCHO). It has been produced with the financial support of the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, and the Jesuit Refugee Service.
