Religion and responses to migration and displacement

ForcedMigration2014CoverThumbThe latest (November 2014) issue of Forced Migration Review, the in-house publication of the University of Oxford Refugee Studies Center, is all about “Faith and responses to displacement.” Describing this special issue, the editors write:

The role of faith in the humanitarian sector is not easy to measure. Faiths generally advocate welcoming the stranger and there are many organisations and individuals inspired by their faith or religion to provide protection and assistance. Yet it is easier to measure the activities inspired by faith than to measure the difference that having that faith makes, and secularly inspired standards for such activities can appear to be in tension with the faith inspiration. FMR 48 includes 36 articles on ‘Faith’ plus seven ‘general’ articles.

Thanks to generous funding support, the entire issue is freely downloadable and the journal is published following the Creative Commons license, allowing broad sharing of all contents provided due credit is given and material is not used for profit.
