- Canadian Association for Refugee and Forced Migration Studies (CARFMS)
CARFMS is to foster an independent community of scholars dedicated to:
- advancing and disseminating Canadian refugee and forced migration research;
- establishing active partnerships and collaborations among researchers, teachers, practitioners, policy makers and advocates; and,
- supporting publications, conferences, and other fora that contribute to open and inclusive communication and networking around issues relating to refugee and forced migration studies in Canada and elsewhere.
- International Association for the Study of Forced Migration (IASFM)
IASFM brings together academics, practitioners and decision-makers working on forced migration issues. Through the ages, the forced movement of people, displaced within their own countries or across borders, has been of concern to states and to humanitarians alike. Whether people have been forced to migrate due to persecution, to flee war, to escape famine, or because of a major development project, they face a need for protection and/or assistance.
- Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers (CARL)
Founded in 2011, the Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers (CARL) serves as an informed national voice on refugee law and human rights, and promotes just and consistent practices in the treatment of refugees in Canada. CARL carries out its work promoting the human rights of refugees in the courts, before parliamentary committees, in the media, among its membership via bi-annual conferences, and elsewhere in the public sphere.
