Shelter in displacement
Marion Couldrey, Maurice Herson (eds)
All displaced people need some form of shelter. Whatever the type of shelter which is found, provided or built, it needs to answer multiple needs: protection from the elements, physical security, safety, comfort, emotional security, some mitigation of risk and unease, and even, as time passes, some semblance of home and community. Thirty articles in FMR 55 look at the complexity of approaches to shelter both as a physical object in a physical location and as a response to essential human needs. This issue of FMR also contains seven ‘general’ articles on other topics of forced migration.
