LERRN-IDRC Webinar: Localized Forced Displacement Research: Lessons from East Africa and the Middle East
June 9, 2021 at 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM
The sixth webinar in the LERRN–IDRC Webinar Series on Forced Displacement focuses on localized knowledge ecosystems. The webinar will showcase phase one results of the IDRC- LERRN project on Localized Knowledge Ecosystem in East Africa and the Middle East. Drawing on findings from Kenya and Ethiopia in East Africa and Lebanon and Jordan in the Middle East, the webinar will shed light on how localized knowledge ecosystems consisting of diverse actors and networks collaborate to produce, translate, and mobilize knowledge to influence forced displacement policy and practice. It will consider the impact these ecosystems have had in shaping protection and assistance for refugees in camps and urban contexts.
This is the sixth in a series of webinars co-hosted by LERRN and IDRC. These monthly seminars will address several dimensions of forced displacement, with an emphasis on the perspectives of actors who are closest to the issues being discussed.
