The number accords with the <em>1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees</em> articulation of a refugee as: an individual who has fled their country &ldquo;owing to well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion.&rdquo; But, as their website admits, in the 63 years since the convention, the dynamics of displacement have radically changed. This definition of a refugee does not account for the millions of people currently displaced by natural disasters, droughts, desertification, sea level rise, population growth, or resource scarcity. Of course such ecological crises are also intricately enmeshed in sociopolitical conflicts, complicating attempts to redefine the refugee or to classify a new category of &ldquo;climate refugees&rdquo; or &ldquo;environmental migrants.&rdquo;</p>... http://archinect.com/features/article/104868902/screen-print-21-log-31-new-ancients Screen/Print #21: Log 31, "New Ancients" Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-07-25T10:13:00-04:00 >2014-08-22T19:05:05-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/ub/ub7f5yy5u4rjxgqj.jpg" width="514" height="726" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><a href="http://archinect.com/firms/cover/46037753/log" target="_blank"><em>Log</em></a> is an insistently literary architecture publication &mdash; that is, it prioritizes text far over image.

The magazine began implementing this &ldquo;Five-year Plan&rdquo; in summer of 2010 with its appropriately titled first release, <em>Innocence</em>, and is now in its eighth issue, with plans to release no more than twenty in total.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/98156717/screen-print-13-one-twelve-s-black-and-white Screen/Print #13: One:Twelve's "Black and White" Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-04-18T12:10:00-04:00 >2014-06-02T23:56:23-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/3i/3iextk1pqng49h5a.jpg" width="514" height="723" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><a href="http://onetwelveksa.wordpress.com/" target="_blank"><strong>One:Twelve</strong></a>, the student-run journal from the Knowlton School of Architecture, is both a collaborative and expansive effort.
