This LibGuide describes the Refugee Studies collections available at the Bodleian Social Science Library and relevant online resources.
The Library contains the collections of the former Refugee Studies Centre (RSC) Library and houses material supporting the research and teaching of the RSC.
The collections cover the causes, experiences, and consequences of forced displacement and have an international coverage. Reflecting the multi-disciplinary nature of the study of forced migration, the Library actively collects materials covering psycho-social issues, human rights, refugee law, relief administration, anthropology, sociology, international affairs, education, health and nutrition.
The LibGuide for Displaced persons: human rights protection and legal resources provides a wealth of links via the Bodleian Law Library.
What do people think about politics?
The 2017 Audit of Political Engagement from the Hansard Society is based on an annual survey of the public conducted by Ipsos MORI between 2 December 2016 and 15 January 2017. The research was carried out face-to-face in people’s homes and considers attitudes towards Brexit, levels of political participation, perception of politics, parliament and politicians.
Political Disengagement in the UK: Who is Disengaged, a House of Commons library research briefing, summarises recent research on the topic.
