MENA Academic Journal and Digital Platform on Displacement

One of the key recommendations from academic partners has been the development of the MENA Academic Journal and Digital Platform for Displacement to enrich Arabic content relating to refugees and displaced persons within the MENA region as well as engage with refugee dialogue more directly by employing Arabic as the language of exchange. Although there is a multitude of publications and journals that are dedicated to displacement and refugee issues, there is yet to be one that is from MENA and in Arabic. The journal will aim to create opportunities for localized and regional knowledge production about displacement, and in the long-term serve as a reference for policymaking and expert advice. MENA CSND member, Arab Institute for Human Rights in Tunisia is taking a lead on producing the journal in partnership with UNHCR.
