The virtual academic conference, “70 years protecting people forced to flee”, will take place on 18, 19, 21 and 27 January as a contribution towards the research and teaching outlined in the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR). This conference is co-hosted by the Global Academic Interdisciplinary Network (GAIN), a mechanism called for in the GCR to facilitate research, teaching and scholarship opportunities which result in specific deliverables in support of its four objectives. GAIN’s secretariat is currently led by the University of Essex and UNHCR, and partnered with 11 academic institutions with expertise on forced displacement to co-host expert panels in each of the regions of the world where UNHCR operates. The Conference will demonstrate unique contributions from academia to burden and responsibility sharing, protection and solutions for refugees, as well as how academic research can inform policy making, programme implementation and evidence-based decision-making.


These sessions will be held on 11th February by the University of Essex and ASILE Network.
