Urban refugees In The Humanitarian System

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
