How to Use this Resource:

Under the “Home” tab you will find helpful information about our project, student research, and the meaning of forced migration. If you are new to Migration and Displacement Studies our “More About Migration” page, which includes an interactive definition and FAQs, is a great place to get started!

Under the Explore the Bibliography tab you will find a collection of written and audiovisual materials illuminating many topics in Migration and Displacement Studies. You can browse these by intended audience, type of source, and variety of keywords. Much of this research has been organized by our research team who have worked to include helpful commentary and guided questions for enrichment.

Under the Additional Projects tab you will find publications of research we have gathered from our learning communities. We are working to expand our Additional Projects and hope to open more pathways for research and for the publication of student work in the future.
