Refuge 36.1 New Issue and COVID-19


On behalf of the editorial team at Refuge: Canada's Journal on Refugees, I am pleased to announce that our most current issue, 36.1, has just been published. The issue may be accessed here:

While we are excited to publish this new issue of Refuge, we are very aware that refugees and other migrants are facing even more challenges at this time due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. From lack of masks and physical distancing options in detention facilities and camps to border closures and halted resettlement programmes to a wide range of other serious and pressing issues, the situations facing displaced persons around the world - already dire - have become even more challenging. At the same time, we continue to see incredible mobilization by migrants and their supporters around the globe in response, reminding us not only of their resiliency, creativity and determination in the face of adversity but of the continued need to document and analyse these issues in order to address the needs of today and lay the foundations for tomorrow.

Refuge: Canada's Journal on Refugees is aware that some authors and peer reviewers may have difficulties in meeting their original deadlines due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you find that you need more time, please let us know and we will work with you to determine a more suitable due date. We also ask authors in the system to please be patient as there may well be delays in either the peer review and/or publication process due to COVID-19 related issues. We will do our best to keep people apprised of any relevant developments as they unfold.
