CfP: Navigating forced displacement: the influence of everyday informal practices on forced migrants’ human security

12 December 2018

Global forced migration has grown by over 50 per cent in the last 10 years reaching 68.5 million people by the end of 2017, 85% of which are hosted in states of the Global South - either their own state or neighbouring states, characterized by situations of fragility (UNHCR 2018).

While the conflict-related forceful movement of people has often been framed as a security threat for states and host communities, a human security approach has broadened the understanding of security to include other areas of human well-being (UNDP, 1994).
