Identity, Rights and Internal Displacement

Middle East Research Network on Internal Displacement

Monday 6 December, 1:00-2:00pm UK / 3:00-4:00pm Syria / 4:00-5:00pm Iraq


The Middle East has experienced unparalleled waves of displacement over the past decade. The Middle East Research Network on Internal Displacement (MERNID) continues its series of conversations on internal displacement in the region with this webinar discussion on identity, rights and internal displacement in Iraq and Syria. The webinar will be chaired by MERNID director, Dr Hana Asfour, and will present insights on this topic from MERNID researchers:

  • "On Refuge and Displacement: Challenges to the Provision of Rights and Protection for Syrians Inside and Outside Syrian Borders" – Dr Jasmin Lilian Diab, Director, Institute for Migration Studies and Assistant Professor at Lebanese American University
  • “Disjunction of Borders, Who Is the Outsider? The Situation of Internal Displaced People in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq” – Atefeh Ramsari, PhD candidate, Bielefeld Graduate School of History and Sociology, Bielefeld University
  • “Youth Identity before and after Daesh in Nineveh, Iraq” – Kamaran Palani, Lecturer in Politics and International Relations, Salahaddin University-Erbil

MERNID works to address the gap in research on internal displacement in the MENA region by building a robust community of researchers and practitioners around this challenge in the region.

The webinar will be English.
