The College of Social Sciences and Humanities of Jigjiga University will host the third Jigjiga Migration Series in Jigjiga City, Somali Regional State from May 10-11, 2019 in collaboration with the Ministry of Peace of FRDE.
The conference on “Conflict, Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), and the Search for Durable Solutions in Ethiopia” will discuss issues revolving around border conflict, development/drought/conflict-induced displacement and governance paradigms within the context of migration and IDPs. It will examine the interplay among conflict-induced, disaster-induced and development-induced internal displacements in Ethiopia and the responses of governmental and non-governmental organizations. Jigjiga invites interested academics and researchers to send in paper abstracts which fall under these themes.
Abstracts are due April 26, 2019.
