Research about refugees and others displaced by violence, persecution, human rights abuses, and environmental degradation is more important than ever. The number of refugees and other displaced people around the world is at record levels. Refugee and forced migration issues are hot button topics in Canada and elsewhere, with increasingly polarized political rhetoric and proposed policy responses. In that context, it is essential that public conversations about refugees and other displaced people be informed by the best possible evidence and by well-developed theoretical and interdisciplinary perspectives – including perspectives that engage meaningfully with people who have lived experience with displacement. Your contribution will help CRS pursue innovative research, education, and policy engagement dedicated to advancing the well-being of refugees and other displaced people in Canada and around the world.
