Forced Migration Review issue 55 with a major feature on ‘Shelter in displacement’ is now online:www.fmreview.org/shelter
All displaced people need some form of shelter. Whatever the type of shelter which is found, provided or built, it needs to answer multiple needs: protection from the elements, physical security, safety, comfort, emotional security, some mitigation of risk and unease, and even, as time passes, some semblance of home and community. This latest issue of FMR looks at the complexity of approaches to shelter both as a physical object in a physical location and as a response to essential human needs.
