Forced Migration Review issue 55 with a major feature on ‘Shelter in displacement’ 

All displaced people need some form of shelter. Whatever the type of shelter which is found, provided or built, it needs to answer multiple needs: protection from the elements, physical security, safety, comfort, emotional security, some mitigation of risk and unease, and even, as time passes, some semblance of home and community. This latest issue of FMR looks at the complexity of approaches to shelter both as a physical object in a physical location and as a response to essential human needs.

It also contains a selection of ‘general’ articles on other forced migration topics.

Read the full issue or individual articles online at www.fmreview.org/shelter (audio/podcast versions also available via this link) or email fmr@qeh.ox.ac.uk to request print copies for your organisation, or for onward distribution or for use in training.

This issue will be available in English, Arabic, French and Spanish.

Shelter Projects 2015-2016

Spanning humanitarian responses from all over the world, Shelter Projects 2015-2016 is the sixth in a series of compilations of shelter case studies, overviews of emergencies and opinion pieces. The projects represent responses to conflict, natural disasters and complex or multiple crises, demonstrating some of the implementation and response options available. The book is intended to support learning by highlighting the strengths, weaknesses and some of the lessons that can be learned from different projects, which try to maximize emergency funds to safeguard the health, security and dignity of affected people, whilst – wherever possible – supporting longer-term shelter needs and sustainable recovery. The target audience is humanitarian managers and shelter programme staff from local, national and international organizations at all levels of experience. Shelter Projects is also a useful resource for advocacy purposes, showcasing the work done by the sector, as well as for research and capacity-building activities.
