A call for abstracts is launched for young researchers

In a global critical scenario, inclusive and collective initiatives are not just interesting, but crucial to the world sustainability. The pandemic has accentuated many problems experienced by forced migrants, especially women, and the situation has urged to foster an efficient reception and promote a strong hosting system, as well as to develop innovative actions that contribute to better attention and inclusion strategies of forcibly displaced people. Believing in young researchers’ competence, this event gives the floor to undergraduates in their last year of studies, Masters’ degree students and PhD students, with the objective to enable them to show their work and improve their careers in a creative way with a possibility to win an award for the best rated work. The participation of young professionals from the field and aid organizations is encouraged. The focus is on practical proposals that help to understand and transform this reality, considering gender inequalities and specificities. Both methodology & research and innovative practice-oriented proposals are welcomed.

Deadline to present the abstract has been extended: 31 March 2021
