Forced Migration Online: A world of information on human displacement

A comprehensive electronic information system for refugee and forced migration studies is currently being developed by the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC), University of Oxford, in collaboration with a number of partner institutions. Forced Migration Online (FMO) will provide instant access to a wide variety of online resources concerning the situation of forced migrants worldwide.

Designed for use by practitioners, researchers, policy makers, students, the media or anyone interested in the field, FMO aims to give comprehensive, impartial information and to promote increased international awareness of human displacement issues. FMO defines forced migration broadly, encompassing displacement as a result of disasters, development initiatives and environmental factors, as well as conflict (refugees and internally displaced people).

The resources available on FMO will include:

FMO will be available online from 21 November 2002 at www.forcedmigration.org.
