McLaughlin College Lunch Talk: The Meaning of Home in Prolonged Conditions of Displacement
May 5, 2014, 12pm-2pm
An increasing number of migrants experience forced immobility and prolonged displacement as a result of restrictive reception policies, securitization of migration and changing migration patterns.
In this talk, Giorgia Doná, a professor of forced migration and refugee studies at the University of East London, examines the changing meanings of home and home-making practices in limbo. Her research focuses on refugee adaptation and well-being, child and youth forced migration, ethnic violence and reconciliation, psycho-social humanitarian assistance and participatory research methodologies.
