The seven articles in this FMR mini-feature explore the roles that animals play in the lives of people who have been displaced. Evidence from animal–human interactions in refugee camps across the world demonstrates the challenges that face both human and animal populations. Better understanding of their needs and greater cooperation between humanitarian and animal welfare organisations can inform how space is organised, risks are mitigated and relations with host communities are managed. This 16-page mini-feature is available online in English, Arabic and Spanish at
