Today we started moving the FOFOGNET Palestinian refugee news/discussion list from the old LISTSERV system to a new Google Group. Because of the daily limits that Google places on new group subscribers this will take several days.
Service will resume on or around August 19, with an announcement on both lists. Shortly thereafter, the old list will be deactivated.
Since it was established in 1996, there have been over 5,000 issues of FOFOGNET, distributing more than 15,000 items of refugee-related news. The email list is open to researchers, foreign ministries, aid agencies, NGOs, journalists, and others with a professional interest in the Palestinian refugee issue.
Frankly, when we started in 1996 we rather hoped it would be becoming obsolete by now. Alas not…
