I’m delighted to be able to announce the HCRI conference ‘Trajectories of Displacement’ which is taking place on 24 & 25 February 2011.
Following on from previous HCRI-ESRC seminars including ‘Who are the humanitarians now?’ and ‘Conflict, intervention and the politics of knowledge’ (see http://www.hcri.ac.uk/events/), the next seminar in our interdisciplinary series addresses key issues relating to population movement and displacement in the modern world. This seminar reflects the fact that displacement arises not only from various kinds of disaster, including violent conflict, but can equally be grounded in modern aspirations and global opportunities. Key topics for discussion include: understanding the trajectories and narratives of ‘people on the move’ in different settings; encounters between refugees and non-refugees, the latter including humanitarian aid workers and other civil society actors; and the resources, material and non-material, that are available in different settings and which may indeed in some circumstances be the ultimate reason for displacement.
The Trajectories of Displacement conference is free of charge. To reserve a place at this conference simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that places will be awarded on a first come, first served basis.
