The RSC hosted a one-day workshop (22 September 2010) The response of faith-based communities and faith-based organisations in the context of forced migration. The event brought together over 60 scholars and practitioners from different faith perspectives and diverse disciplinary backgrounds to explore the motives and practices of faith communities and faith-based organisations in their response to forced displacement. The workshop also examined the role of faith, religious conviction and spirituality in the experiences, practices and behaviours of forced migrants themselves. A selected number of papers will be included in a special issue of the Journal of Refugee Studies to be published in late 2011.
