Forced Migration Online (FMO) provides online access to a diverse range of resources concerning the situation of forced migrants worldwide. By bringing together this collection of useful and time-saving resources, our primary aim is to support and facilitate research and policy making in the field.
The FMO collection adheres to international standards for organizing, managing and displaying information about the resources included in its collection.
The Refugee Studies Centre (RSC) was established in 1982, as part of the University of Oxford's Department of International Development (Queen Elizabeth House), in order to promote the understanding of the causes and consequences of forced migration and to improve the lives of some of the world’s most marginalised people. Its philosophy is to "combine world-class academic research with a commitment to improving the lives and situations for some of the world’s most disadvantaged people".
