In the latest issue of Forced Migration Review (Issue 45: Crisis), Development Studies' Dr Anna Lindley questions 'drought displacement' and investigates environment, politics and migration in Somalia, and Professor Richard Black and Michael Collyer write on populations 'trapped' at times of crisis.
Many people who are displaced, or become ‘trapped’, in the context of diverse humanitarian crises do not fit well within existing legal, policy and operational frameworks for the protection of refugees and IDPs. This raises questions about whether there needs to be – or can be – more systematic ways of dealing with assistance and protection for people affected by ‘crises’ such as environmental disruption, gang violence, nuclear disasters, food shortages and so on. FMR 45 contains 33 articles on crisis, migration and displacement, and eight general articles on other subjects relating to forced migration.
