Working Group on Feminist Theory, Refugees and Displacement

Established in 2020, the Working Group on Feminist Theory, Refugees and Displacement is the second working group to be created at the RLI. It provides an academic platform for promoting exchange and developing collaborative research using feminist theory in displacement research. Currently, it consists of experts from the Middle East, Africa, Asia, South America, Australia, US and Europe.
