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.
