Forced Migration Review 50 on Dayton +20 Now Online

03 September, 2015

Forced Migration Review issue 50 is now online at

Twenty years on from the signing of the Dayton Peace Agreement in November 1995, the consequences of conflict – including the long-term effects of displacement – are still being felt in the Western Balkans. FMR 50 examines the case of people who were displaced from and within Bosnia and Herzegovina as a result of the 1992-95 war, and reflects on the lessons that may be drawn from the successes and failures of the Agreement. These lessons have resonance for current crises – such as in Syria or Ukraine – and merit attention.

FMR 50 includes 20 articles on ‘Dayton +20’, plus five ‘general’ articles on: safe shelters for survivors of SGBV, inconsistencies in asylum appeal adjudication in the UK, assisted voluntary return of young Afghans, refugees’ perspectives on successful resettlement in the US, and the fragmentation of the ‘protection landscape’.

The English edition of this issue of FMR is available online in pdf, html and audio (mp3) formats. It will be available in print in late September.

FMR 50 will also be available online in Bosnian (Latin and Cyrillic), Arabic, Spanish and French. The Bosnian (both alphabets) and Arabic editions will also be available in print.
