This event convened around thirty prominent academic experts, humanitarian practitioners and policy decision makers to engage in a roundtable debate on the current situation of Iraq’s forced displacement crisis. The debate included deliberations on the situation facing both Iraqi refugees and internally displaced people, and provided a neutral forum for the sharing of information, analysis and opinion regarding 1) the current status of the forced displacement crisis, 2) the protection challenges faced by humanitarian agencies in the region, and 3) recommendations for action.
