Call for Participants: The Forced Displacement Workshop for Junior Scholars

The Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC) at the University of Ottawa and its partner, the Refugee Hub, are launching a workshop series for junior scholars researching in areas related to forced displacement in any discipline.

The workshop will be conducted virtually, starting in late January 2020 and recur monthly. Each session will feature a presenter from the group, whose work in-progress will be circulated in advance. One designated commentator will be tasked with providing remarks on the paper before having an open discussion over (approximately) 90 minutes. Through this initiative, participants will build a community with colleagues from around the world, share their ideas, and strengthen their writing through an informal collaborative process.

Submissions and any questions can be sent to David HUGHES, Alex Trebek Postdoctoral Fellow with the Refugee Hub and the HRREC, at

This initiative is part of the Project Changing Order: Shaping the Future and Securing Rights in a World in Transformation and benefits from the support of the Alex Trebek Forum for Dialogue.

Deadline: January 8th, 2021.
