The focus of this event will be on systemic action for the protection of the most vulnerable, whether refugees in camps, migrants on the move, or (undocumented) migrants closer to home.
Each year on 18 December the International Institute of Social Sciences (ISS) celebrates International Migrants Day. Protection of people on the move, including migrants and refugees, continues to be more relevant than ever in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, continued migration streams and more recently the developments in Belarus and the situation in Afghanistan.
There is a need to focus on durable and systemic action – at international, national and sub-national level. What can we learn from recent research findings? What actions can various actors take and how can they collaborate to take steps towards finding durable action?
This second episode of InSightS Live will be centered around a key ISS research theme of migration and diversity. Specifically, we will look at the question of how we can move away from ad-hoc half-solutions towards durable and systemic action for refugees and migrants.
We will look at this issue from several perspectives and roles: civil society, policy and research. How can these different actors contribute to more durable solutions for people on the move?
The conversation will be ISS at its finest: critical, based on real-world insights, bringing together a kaleidoscope of perspectives. Topic veteran or newbie, this episode is relevant for us all and you are welcome to join!
