Impact Hub | 14th of December 2023| 13h-15h | Geneva, Switzerland

On the 14th of December, at the R-Space (the alternative space to the Global Refugee Forum led by Refugee-led organizations in Geneva), the Local Engagement Refugee Research Network (LERRN) and Refugees Seeking Equal Access at the Table (R-SEAT) organized a roundtable to discuss collaboration between academia and RLOs to advance refugee-led advocacy. The discussion was centered on how to put the norms related to refugee-led advocacy into practice, the challenges of these collaborations, the benefits, the misunderstandings, and the risks involved. Over thirty persons from academia and refugee leaders attended the space. The discussion was moderated by Professor Nyi Nyi Kyaw from Chiang Mai University in Thailand, one of the Research Chairs on forced displacement funded by the International Development Research Centre.
