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:




Forced Migration Current Awareness (FM-CAB) [access]

- A current awareness service highlighting web research and information relating to refugees, IDPs and forced migration.


Researching Refugees [access]

- Created to track web technologies that can help refugee researchers keep up to date with new information in their field. Discontinued in July 2009.


Online Resources


New Items (can be accessed directly or via FM-CAB): Books, Journal Articles, Law
