Description:

Designed to function as a comprehensive website that provides access to various resources on forced human migration, this site is provided through the courtesy of the staff at the Refugee Studies Centre at the University of Oxford. While the users of this site will encounter a seamlessly integrated resource, the site contains four separate components. These elements include a searchable digital library, a searchable catalogue with descriptions of and links to Internet-based resources, and a series of geographic and thematic research guides. The homepage offers users access to all of these resources, along with a sidebar that features relevant upcoming events as the International Day of Older Persons. The site also affords visitors access to the full-text of three important publications in the field: Disasters, Forced Migration Review, and International Migration Review (some archived journals are several years behind the current issue). It is worth noting that the homepage also contains a link to a nice introductory essay by Sean Loughna titled "What is Forced Migration?"
