Successful seminar series on Unwanted Peoples and Boundaries of Citizenship

The International Institute of Social Studies and the Conflict and Resilience Research Institute (CRRIC) in Winnipeg, Canada recently held a series of four webinars on  ‘Unwanted’ Peoples and Boundaries of Citizenship Struggles: Rohingya, Banyamulenge and others'.
