In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the expulsion of Asians from Uganda the conference Beyond Resettlement: Exploring the History of the Ugandan Asian Community in Exile will explore the historical context of the expulsion, Canada’s response and reception, the larger diaspora of Ugandan Asian refugees, and the lived experiences of the community over the past 50 years. The conference aims yield several lessons on pathways to integration, memory, and identity.
