We are proud to announce the launch of the Forced Migration Forum—a platform for discussion of topics relating to forced migration from all academic fields and policy points of view.  We have several aims: to provide a place for debate on the core assumptions and concepts of our field; to encourage researchers to post and discuss their work (and spark a discussion about the research findings and their relevance); and to serve a “translation” function, bringing research to policy-thinkers and makers in a way that is useful to them.

To make this all work, we will need active Forum participants—not just passive readers. So we invite you to send us your research, notices and reviews of noteworthy articles and books, contributions to forced migration theory, and policy proposals on vital topics of the day.

Looking forward to your views, thoughts and participation!

Alex Aleinikoff, Muneer Ahmad and Patrick Weil
