Fall 2016 meeting Dutch Association for Migration Research
on Urban Refugees
The organisation ‘UrbanRefugees.org’ claims that 58% of the refugees now live in cities. The UNHCR estimates that more than 10 million refugees and 27 million IDPs (internally displaced persons) live in urban areas. Urban refugees avoid the traditional refugee camps because of the poor living and security conditions and the lack of prospect for the future.
A context - specific approach - PhD Workshop, 21 November 2017, Utrecht
The workshop was financed by DAMR and convened by Vassilis Gerasopoulos and Dr. Nilay Kavur from Utrecht University. It covered a selection of films produced in different European countries with an endeavor to 'read' the language of films that have dealt with the experience of migration - both the experiences of the displaced, and the receiving populations.
