The latest issue of Forced Migration Review is now online, with a major feature on ‘Socio-economic integration: towards solutions for displaced people’.
The quest for socio-economic integration, for both forcibly displaced people and host communities, raises fundamental questions for all those involved in the refugee and IDP systems about how displaced people can live with autonomy and dignity.
The authors in FMR 71 share new perspectives on socio-economic integration that we hope can lead to a concrete and transformative shift in approaches. They reimagine the role of integration in responses to displacement, at a significant time of global change marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, urgent climate-related pressures and ongoing digital transformation. Most importantly, this issue includes displaced people’s voices and strategies in working towards solutions.
FMR 71 is available online in two formats: a Magazine and a shorter Digest, which includes a listing of all articles with weblinks.
FMR are grateful to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) for their generous support for this issue. They would also like to thank their core donors: ADRA International • Danish Refugee Council • International Rescue Committee • International Organization for Migration • Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs • UNICEF • UNHCR • Women’s Refugee Commission.
