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.
