Library Database

April 01, 2024

Immigrations, Migrations and Refugees, Global Perspectives, 1941–1996 is a fully searchable archive of news reports, television transcripts, and radio transcripts from around the world. The reports were chosen by a U.S. government agency called the Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) — which became part of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in 1947 — to be disseminated among government officials and decision makers. The reports begin with the refugee flows during World War II and cover all crises through 1996. The reports come from many nations and, where necessary, were translated into English. No U.S. newspapers or broadcasts are included in this database.
