Calls for Papers: Forced Migration Review and Protection of Forced Migrants, Africa

Forced Migration Review issue 62 on ‘Return’, plus mini feature on understanding and addressing root causes of displacement

Deadline for submission of articles: Monday 17 June 2019
Maximum length: 2500 words

As one of the three ‘durable solutions’, voluntary return in safety and dignity has been a core tenet of the international refugee regime since the signing of the 1951 Refugee Convention, and is also reaffirmed in the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement. Debates around the subject are complex, touching on political, legal and socio-economic questions as well as the central principle of non-refoulement and the humanitarian imperative to ensure that returns are informed, safe, voluntary and dignified.
This new issue of FMR will provide a forum for practitioners, advocates, policymakers, researchers and those directly affected to look at recent developments, share experience and good practice, debate perspectives and offer recommendations.
