Organised in partnership with the Forced Migration Research Network

The Forced Migration Research Network is a network of scholars based predominantly in the Faculties of Arts, Design and Architecture and Law and Justice at UNSW. We are an interdisciplinary network working across the social sciences, history, philosophy, media and film studies, criminology, cultural studies, education, and social psychology. We partner with civil society organisations, service providers, government bodies and international actors to undertake our research, policy, training, and advocacy activities.

The Network's objectives include:

  • supporting and working in partnership with refugee communities and forced migrants

  • building strong partnerships with organisations in the refugee sector

  • implementing our commitment to participatory, gender and diversity-sensitive rights-based research

  • fostering deeper collaboration across the different research areas

  • showcasing the diversity of innovative work undertaken at UNSW, and

  • building on and extending industry and academic partnerships

  • collaborating with the Forced Migration Research Students Network (FMRSM) composed of postgraduate scholars
