Hello and welcome to this new Refugee Research Blog for the 2008-2009 academic year.  This blog will now form a part of our growing online resources to help support both the taught masters programme in Refugee Studies at the University of East London and also the Refugee Council Archive and associated collections held within the archives at the UEL Docklands Campus Library.

This blog will be used to provide updates on key information related speficaly to research within the refugee studies and forced migration fields.  In addition, one of my plans for the forthcoming academic year is to develop an online Refugee Research Portal which will help to bring together a comprehensive range of resources including materials from our collections and also a comprehensive listing of resources which are available over the web.  Further information in this regard will be posted here shortly.

Please feel free to use this blog and to recommend any improvements that you would like to see and we would very much like you to consider posting any comments to our posts here on the blog.

I hope you find this blog useful and all feedback and comments would be appreciated.
