Scholarship on the causes and consequences of forced migration has expanded rapidly in recent years. With the global number of refugees and forced migrants at historically high levels, research in this area could not be timelier. This special issue advances our theoretical and empirical knowledge of forced migration and contributes several policy-relevant findings. The individual contributions examine issues such as the timing of migration, conflict involving refugees, and public attitudes toward hosting refugees. It is hoped that this issue will spark additional research into this critically important topic. Read the issue for free until 1 March:
