As part of the Economic Conditions of Displacement research project, the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) and the Norwegian Centre for Humanitarian Studies (NCHS) have the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar to discuss the current refugee crisis, characterized by an unprecedented flow of migrants to Europe, but with similarly broad implications beyond European shores. Poorer countries, particularly in Africa, have also become recipients themselves of large groups of refugees or have turned into major transit destinations along the road towards Europe.
By portraying a crisis that simultaneously produces winners and losers, the seminar will present a case study from the Nakivale refugee camp in southwestern Uganda, address the various economic processes found along migration routes to Europe and discuss prospected measures and their impacts on refugee populations as well as on transit and host destinations.
The presenter, Morten Bøås, is a Research Professor and works predominantly on issues concerning peace and conflict in Africa, including issues such as land rights and citizenship conflicts, youths, ex-combatants and the new landscape of insurgencies and geopolitics.
The event will also be live streamed on Youtube.

Note: This seminar will be held in Norwegian.
