I am an independent information specialist who focuses on forced migration issues. After receiving my Master’s in Library Science in 1991, I worked for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Washington, DC and Geneva, as well as the Refugee Studies Centre in Oxford.  I have written a number of articles and produced a variety of information resources relating to refugees and forced migration, including the following:
