Local communities: first and last providers of protection
Marion Couldrey, Maurice Herson (eds)
It is often people’s immediate community that provides the first, last and perhaps best tactical response for many people affected by or under threat of displacement. In the 23 feature theme articles in this issue of FMR, authors from around the world – including authors who are themselves displaced – explore the capacity of communities to organise themselves before, during and after displacement in ways that help protect the community. FMR 53 also includes eight ‘general’ articles on other aspects of forced migration.
