Karen Jacobsen and Charles Simpson edited special issue in FMR

Charles Simpson and Karen Jacobsen helped edit issue 63 in the Forced Migration Review.

Forced Migration Review issue 63 with a major feature on ‘Cities and towns’ is now online: www.fmreview.org/cities.  

 Cities and towns are on the frontline of receiving and welcoming people who have been displaced. In this issue of FMR, policymakers, practitioners, researchers, representatives of cities and international city-focused alliances, and displaced people themselves debate the challenges facing both the urban authorities and their partners, and the people who come to live there. As the Mayor of Bristol says in the Foreword, we hope this issue will “help cities live up to their potential and help make the world a safer, fairer and kinder place for those forced to move.”
