Forced Migration Research Network (FMRN) for an Academic Symposium at UNSW: February 21
If you’re feeling blue about recent political events, come and join the Forced Migration Research Network (FMRN) for an Academic Symposium at UNSW. The Symposium will tackle a range of vexed questions on the role of research in refugee policy, on public opinion and the social realities of belonging. The Symposium also showcases some visual artists and filmmakers working with refugee communities. It will be run in panel format, leaving lots of room for discussion and questions from the audience.
The Symposium will end with a roundtable discussion on the New York Declaration and the resulting Global Compacts process, chaired by Jane McAdam and including Eileen Pittaway, Graham Thom, David Sanderson and Violeta Moreno-Lax.
Places have been allocated for unwaged participants, and people seeking asylum or from refugee backgrounds are particularly encouraged to apply. For more information or to sign up, click the button below.
