Lessons Learned Simulations And Training is organizing a two days course on urban refugees.
Participants will explore the social, political, and economic dynamics which arise from the interplay between stakeholders in humanitarian crises.
The course aims to be the bridge between academic theory, critical “red teaming” approaches, and humanitarian practice.
Once this course is completed, participants will be able to:
Have an understanding of the social and political dynamics of urban refugees through urban refugees response scenarios and the systems which underlie those dynamics
Predict possible breakdowns in humanitarian response by discussing past examples
Critically and constructively engage with humanitarian work
Know motivations and goals of people who go through displacement, and contrast them with humanitarian assumptions
Date: Saturday, 6th to 7th of July, 2019
Time: 9:30 a.m to 4:30 p.m
Location: Laurentian Leadership Centre of Trinity Western University, 252 Metcalfe Street, Ottawa
