Invitation to workshop on “Responsibility-sharing in the context of global displacement: Taking stock and looking forward. A comparative inquiry into the responses to Syrian and Ukrainian displacement waves”

In the last decades, the world has witnessed major waves of displacement, spurring heated debates around responsibility-sharing and its meaning in theory and practice. To this day, however, we lack a tangible legal and normative framework as to how states and non-state actors should share responsibility and cooperate in multilateral platforms over displacement.

Description

In this two-day exploratory workshop, we aim to take stock of various forms and meanings of responsibility-sharing against the backdrop of the two distinct waves of Syrian and Ukrainian displacement. Geopolitics, histories, institutions, legal, cultural, and policy norms matter. Yet how to make sense of variation and commonalities in responses to both waves of displacement?

The workshop brings together prominent academic and policy voices to discuss complex questions at the heart of responsibility-sharing in the context of global displacement. Speakers will draw on a variety of case studies and conceptual debates with a view to unpacking the different facets of refugee responsibility-sharing. The workshop features a key note speech by Professor Michael Doyle (Columbia University) and plenary addresses by Professor Suzan Ilcan (University of Waterloo and Balsillie School of International Affairs), and Henrik M. Nordentoft (UNHCR, Stockholm).
