Interdisciplinary Migration and Refugee Workshop: Developing a Research Community
On April 18, 2019, the Refugee and Newcomer Program at SFU International, in partnership with the Centre for Gender and Sexual Health Equity, hosted the Interdisciplinary Migration and Refugee Workshop: Developing a Research Community.
A total of 56 people attended the event, including 19 invited speakers and 5 poster presenters. The one-day workshop provided a space for SFU researchers working on refugee and migration issues to foster a community and catalyze their work with community partners and stakeholders.
Participants learned about one another’s research, forged connections across disciplines and sectors, and deepened understanding for partnerships and community engaged research.
