LERRN Webinars

Welcome to LERRN’s collection of insightful and impactful webinars. Each session is supported by or hosted by LERRN, featuring a range of events dedicated to discussing critical issues surrounding refugees and displaced persons.

Project Launch: Evaluation of Refugee-Led Organizations in East Africa and the Middle East

LERRN, the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC) at the University of Oxford, and the Centre for Lebanese Studies (CLS), are working together on a study funded by a consortium of donors including the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), the Open Society Foundations (OSF), Robert Bosch Stiftung and others. This innovative, fully participatory research is led by researchers with lived experience of forced displacement and aims to understand the factors that influence the impact of refugee-led organisations (RLOs) as service-delivery providers in humanitarian settings in East Africa and the Middle East.

LERRN-RRN Series: Ethics in Forced Migration Research

From November 2021 to March 2022, the Local Engagement Refugee Research Network (LERRN) and the Refugee Research Network (RRN) co-hosted a series of monthly webinars addressing the ethics of forced migration research at various stages of the research process, from setting the agenda to sharing the research. With a growing understanding in the field of forced migration that it is important to do research differently, this series was aimed at building a community of practice of people dedicated to supporting ethical and relevant research on forced migration, and at sharing best practices on designing and conducting research.

The LERRN-RRN Webinar Series on Ethics in Forced Migration Research was coordinated by Rachel McNally, LERRN Knowledge Mobilization and Translation Officer. For further information or ideas please contact us here.

LERRN-IDRC Series: Forced Displacement

From October 2020 to June 2021, the Local Engagement Refugee Research Network (LERRN) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) co-hosted monthly seminars addressing several dimensions of forced displacement, with an emphasis on the perspectives of partners closest to the issues being discussed.

The LERRN-IDRC Webinar Series on Forced Displacement was coordinated by Jennifer Kandjii, LERRN Research Officer. For further information or ideas please contact us here.
