A Conference hosted by the Immigration Initiative at Harvard (IIH) and Immigration Research Fellows Program with Perry World House.
All are welcome!
Recent years have seen a global upheaval in the way we understand, talk about, and research issues of migration and displacement. From international responses to COVID-19, to the Black Lives Matter movement in the United States and beyond, what it means to move and mobilize in migrant and refugee spaces intersects with a range of radical new politics, practices, and ideas.
This is true in universities, schools, hospitals as with other institutions where we have seen the emergence of a range of bold new voices in migration research and practice spanning subject-matter, methods, and impact.
With a focus on early career researchers and eye on impact, this conference is free, internationally-minded and open to all. It seeks to provide a meeting-ground for the fertilization of new approaches to what has become, in the last two decades, an established field of global migration research and action.
