Commencing on October 19th, 2020 this virtual conference will be hosted jointly by Yarmouk University (YU), German Jordanian University (GJU), Academics in Solidarity (AiS), EDU-SYRIA, GIZ, and the UNHCR. The primary objective of this conference is to shed light on the main issues and challenges connected to the fate of refugees in order to address and enhance responses of both host communities and refugees within contexts of protracted displacement. With an attempt to comprehensively shed light on the range of needs of both refugees and host communities, diverse sessions will address areas ranging from the plight of displaced scholars, to mental health needs and the role of social work, government and civil society. Presenters are both academics and practitioners from the Middle East (Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine), Turkey, and North America including the USA and Canada.

 

Due to the global pandemic and current protection measures, the conference will be virtual and take place over the course of four days beginning on October 19th and 20th, and on November 3rd and 17th. The conference is free of charge. Further information can be found on https://protracted-displacement.org.
