JMHS Special Collection | Protracted Displacement, the Search for Solutions, Promising Programs and Strategies
April 18, 2023
The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) is pleased to announce the release of a special issue of its Journal on Migration and Human Security (JMHS) on protracted displacement. The issue, co-edited by Donald Kerwin and Elizabeth Ferris (guest editor), is entitled Protracted Displacement, the Search for Solutions, Promising Programs and Strategies.
The special issue features 11 papers, beginning with an integrative paper by Ferris and Kerwin that offers topline findings, recommendations, and cross-cutting themes from the papers that form the heart of the collection. These papers — by leading scholars and researchers, including displaced persons — focus on the situations of several large and some smaller and less-publicized populations in protracted displacement. The special issue covers both groups outside their countries of origin and internally displaced persons (IDPs). Among other populations, the papers highlight Rohingya refugees in southeast Bangladesh; Syrians in Turkey since 2011; Afghans in Pakistan since the 1970s; IDPs living on the outskirts of Baku, Azerbaijan; IDPs and Venezuelans in Colombia; Somalis in Ethiopia and Kenya; Central Americans seeking protection in Mexico and the United States; IDPs in Northern Mexico; and Syrian, Iraqi, Yemeni, Sudanese, Somali, and Iranian refugees in Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon.
More than 100 million persons are forcibly displaced throughout the world, with roughly three-quarters of them in situations of protracted displacement. This special issue examines the causes, consequences, and promising strategies in response to these diverse situations. The papers also offer an intimate look at the challenges, needs, and aspirations of affected populations and communities.
