9th Biennial IASFM Conference
|datum:|| 9 -13 januari 2005
|plaats:|| São Paulo, Brazil
For the first time, the Biennial Conference of the International Association for the Study of Forced Migration (IASFM) will be held in South America, hosted by Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo and the Latin American Parliament. The conference will be organized around a theme of global significance: the search for solutions to forced migrations. It will also present an important opportunity to broaden the scope of the IASFM, by including issues and perspectives of importance to Latin America. These include involuntary economic migration, the emerging role of southern countries in third-country resettlement, conflict-induced displacement, and development- and environmentally-induced displacement.
This conference will bring together academics, practitioners, policy makers, government representatives, and forced migrants with a wide array of disciplinary and geographic backgrounds. Leading figures in the field will provide keynote and plenary speeches; panels will explore the sub-themes and issues outlined in the call for papers which is available from www.iasfm.org
