Subject Categories

 

The source for this selection of subject categories is a classification scheme that was first developed by the British Refugee Council in November 1995, and later modified by the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC).  The hierarchical listing below displays broad subjects used to classify information resources in this guide.  Clicking on a category will take you to a separate page with a title list of all resources assigned a particular subject.  In this way, readers can easily browse related records.  (Note: Browse the index terms list to locate resources that have been described using much more specific keywords from the International Thesaurus of Refugee Terminology.)
