RSC Public Seminar Series Hilary Term 2023

'Forced Migration and Digital Technologies: (Dis)continuities in Actors and Power Relations'

Series convenors: Dr Derya Ozkul and Dr Marie Godin

This year the RSC Public Seminar Series will take place through (usually) fortnightly seminars on Tuesday lunchtimes from 1-2pm, but please check the details for each seminar.

Abstract

The current refugee resettlement system is inefficient because there are too few resettlement places and because refugees are resettled to locations where they might not thrive. I will overview some recent efforts to improve employment outcomes of refugees arriving to the United States. I will then describe some recent efforts to incorporate refugees' preferences in processes that match them to locations.
