The internal displacement of millions of people every year is a human tragedy, as well as a political, social and economic challenge for many countries across the globe. It is increasingly recognised that large-scale, protracted internal displacement is often underpinned by problematic development trajectories, and that long-term displacement has a significant, if still unquantified, impact on national and regional economies, stability and security. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development gives express attention to internally displaced persons (IDPs) as a vulnerable group not to be left behind. Moreover, internal displacement cuts across all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), meaning that failing to address the realities of internal displacement risks holding back or even reversing progress on achieving those goals. Yet, while the negative impacts of internal displacement can hamper national progress, the evidence for how this plays out remains fragmented, and systematic studies are scant.

Call for Chapter Proposals: Deadly Voyages
Submission Deadline: 30 November 2017
Migrants the world over have been compelled to make deadly voyages to escape harsh conditions in pursuit of a better life. Whether it is fatal journey made by “Boat People” to Australia; migrants desperately crossing the Mediterranean; Syrian refugees converging at the frontiers of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt; or unaccompanied minors from “Northern Triangle” nations trekking thousands of miles on to enter the United States via Mexico; their vulnerability is certain. Many fall prey to traffickers, smugglers, violence, exploitation and death. For instance, Amnesty International reports that, at the current rate of 2.7 deaths per every 100 people, 2017 promises to be the deadliest year for refugees crossing the Mediterranean. Despite the increasing number of deaths of forced migrants, international law and communities struggle with coordinating socio-legal and humanitarian efforts to effectively address the current global migrant crisis. The purpose of this forthcoming book is to examine the efficacy of international, regional, national and local responses to deadly voyages of forced migrants globally. Interested authors should send a title (12 words maximum); brief description of your proposed chapter (300-500 words maximum); and a CV to email@example.com no later than 30 November 2017.
