The latest issue of Forced Migration Review on ‘Economies: rights and access to work’ is now online.

When people are forced to leave their homes, they usually also leave behind their means of economic activity and subsistence. In their new location, they may not be able, or permitted, to work to support themselves. This has wide-ranging implications for their earning capacity and well-being and also for community relations, economic development and the capacity of future generations to lead fulfilling lives. This issue of FMR explores the complex interactions of the constraints and opportunities involved, highlighting the roles of new actors, new technologies and new – or renewed – approaches.

The issue includes 22 articles on the main feature theme, including articles written by Professor Roger Zetter and former RSC colleague Héloïse Ruaudel, by Dr Naohiko Omata, and by ODID DPhil candidate Nora Bardelli.

The issue also includes a mini-feature (a collection of six articles) on refugee-led social protection led by Evan Easton-Calabria and Dr Kate Pincock, and a mini-feature on humans and animals in refugee camps led by Dr Benjamin Thomas White (University of Glasgow)
