Economies: rights and access to work
Marion Couldrey, Jenny Peebles (eds)
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. This issue includes 22 articles on the main feature theme of Economies: rights and access to work. It also includes two ‘mini-features’, one on Refugee-led social protection and one on Humans and animals in refugee camps.
