CRS brings together a team of nationally and internationally recognized academics working in the interdisciplinary field of Refugee Studies. Beyond its core faculty, the program draws together a remarkably large number of York and non- York scholars. As active researchers, they have strong connections to the regions and communities within which their research takes place and are engaged in international academic, institutional, and civil society networks that promote collaboration and knowledge mobilization.
In Canada, our colleagues bring leadership to Centre for Refugee Studies along with their commitment to disciplinary associations. At York, they are involved in various research networks and occupy leadership positions in several Research Centres.
