Academic Articles

This section provides a forum for students to explore practical and conceptual issues pertaining to forced migration. Submissions must engage with and interrogate existing literature on forced migration, present in-depth research in a given area, and offer original insights into a situation or trend. As OxMo recognises and values the multidisciplinary nature of Forced Migration Studies, we  encourage  submissions  from  across  academic  disciplines,  including  but  not  limited  to: political  science,  law,  anthropology,  ethics  and  philosophy,  sociology,  economics  and media studies.

Submissions to the Academic Articles must not exceed 6,000 words (including footnotes).

First Hand

This  section  encourages  individuals  to  share  personal  reflections  on  experience(s)  of displacement,  presenting  the  opportunity  to  those  directly  affected  by  the  laws,  policies  and activities  of  governments  and  agencies  we monitor  to  give  expression  to  their  insights  and perspectives. We seek critical, balanced analyses that allow the reader to gain an understanding of the  context  in  which  the  report  is  written  and  that  engages  with  wider  implications  of  the situation described.
