Refugee and forced migration studies at the SSL

Refugee Studies grey literature

Most of the materials have a geographical orientation, dealing with policy or practice in a particular region or country. Strengths include southern and East Africa, western Europe, the Middle East, and South and South East Asia.  Reflecting the multi-disciplinary nature of the study of forced migration, subjects covered include psycho-social issues, human rights, refugee law, relief administration, anthropology, sociology, international affairs, education, health and nutrition.  Date coverage is mostly from the mid-1980s to the present day.

You can search for refugee studies grey literature via SOLO where you will also find online versions of 3,000 of the documents along with a further 2,700 reports, articles and working papers from other organisations.  These items were all originally digitised for the Forced Migration Online Digital Library.
