Leah Nichles, Sayre Nyce 10 Jul 2018
104 FMR 58 - Validating highly educated refugees’ qualifications Qualification certificates play a central role in the labour market integration of highly educated refugees but validating them presents considerable challenges.

Richard Mallett, Jessica Hagen-Zanker, Clare Cummings, Nassim Majidi 09 Jul 2018

112 FMR 58 Refugee-led social protection - Refugee-led social protection: reconceiving refugee assistance The help and assistance that refugees offer each other is central to the lives of many displaced people.

124 FMR 57 - Competing security and humanitarian imperatives in the Berm Approximately 60,000 Syrians are trapped in 'the Berm', a desolate area on the Syria-Jordan border. When security concerns are prioritised over humanitarian needs and aid agencies turn to militant groups to deliver aid, the consequences can be deplorable. Charles Simpson 05 Mar 2018
125 FMR 57 - Categorising Syrians in Lebanon as 'vulnerable' Vulnerability assessments are used by humanitarian actors to identify those at greater risk of harm but their use in the response to displaced Syrians in Lebanon is problematic. Maja Janmyr, Lama Mourad 28 Feb 2018
126 FMR 57 - Rethinking the lessons from Za'atari refugee camp Humanitarian efforts to build a model refugee camp when constructing Azraq camp in Jordan – drawing on what was supposed to have been learned in Za'atari camp – missed crucial aspects of Za'atari's governance. Melissa N Gatter 28 Feb 2018

Emma Pearce, Boram Lee 28 Feb 2018
130 FMR 57 - Syrian refugees: thinking beyond gender stereotypes The dominant gender narratives among NGOs responding to Syrian refugees, and their subsequent interventions, are based on sometimes simplistic understandings of the ‘traditional’ Syrian household and power dynamics. Michelle Lokot 28 Feb 2018
131 FMR 57 - How migration to Europe affects those left behind Families are frequently separated as a result of migration and displacement from the Middle East to Europe, yet humanitarian aid is often difficult to access and insufficient to meet the needs of those left behind. Megan Passey 28 Feb 2018
132 FMR 57 - Peace education and psychosocial support for social cohesion Evidence from psychosocial support-based peace education work with young displaced Syrians shows that addressing trauma is critical in overcoming psychological barriers to social cohesion. Ruth Simpson 28 Feb 2018
133 FMR 57 - Private sector engagement in refugee education The involvement of the private sector in providing education for Syrian refugees has much to commend it but greater consideration needs to be paid to the ethical and practical concerns that may arise.

143 FMR 57 - Balancing the rights of displaced, returning and remaining populations: learning from Iraq The return of some 3.1 million IDPs in Iraq to their places of origin is seen as a benchmark of success in the aftermath of the recent civil war. However, the situation is complex. Nadia Siddiqui 27 Feb 2018

161 FMR 56 - Central American refugees: protected or put at risk by communication technologies?

166 FMR 56 - Colombia: time to invoke the cessation clause?

174 FMR 56 - Eradicating statelessness in the Americas Considerable progress has been made towards eradicating statelessness in Latin America and the Caribbean since 2014 but there is still work to be done if it is to become the first world region to eradicate statelessness. Juan Ignacio Mondelli 31 Oct 2017
