Forced Migration Review 43 on States of Fragility Now Online
Forced Migration Review issue 43, on ‘States of Fragility’, is now online at www.fmreview.org/fragile states
Many states fail in their responsibilities to their citizens but those states which are fragile, failed or weak are particularly liable to render their citizens vulnerable. This latest issue of FMR includes 24 articles on fragile states and displacement, going behind the definitions, typologies and indicators to explore some of the concepts and realities, looking at a variety of cases and discussing some of the humanitarian and development responses. In addition this issue contains eight further ‘general articles’ on other aspects of displacement.
FMR 43 will be available online and in print in English, French, Spanish and Arabic.
The next issue of FMR, focusing on ‘Detention and deportation’, is due out in September.
