> Dear colleague,
> The Centre for Refugee Studies at York University in Toronto, Canada,
> along with a number of Canadian and international institutions, is in the
> process of developing a Refugee Research Network with the express goal of
> contributing to the improvement of the well-being of refugees and forced
> migrants around the world by:
> expanding our awareness of the global knowledge regime concerning refugee
> issues and forced migration
> improving communication concerning this knowledge within and between
> academic, policy-making and practice sectors in the Global South and
> North, and
> alliance-building and active policy involvement in the development of
> national and international policy frameworks and humanitarian practices
> affecting refugees and forced migrants.
> For more information about the network, please visit our website at
> www.refugeeresearch.net. This website has been created to encourage as
> much online collaboration, networking and information-sharing among
> researchers doing work on refugee and forced migration-related issues as
> possible. We use the term "researcher" quite broadly - it encompasses
> academics affiliated with universities, colleges and other research
> institutes, field- and community-based researchers, individuals working
> within the I/NGO, grassroots and governmental sectors who produce various
> kinds of theoretical and/or policy relevant and practice-based research.
> We are currently collaborating with 8 international research centres, and
> 4 international voluntary sector organizations, including the UNHCR, along
> with a host of Canadian and international researchers, NGO networks and
> various departments within the Government of Canada.
> One of our staff members will be attending a conference  in Nairobi this
> March, and we thought we might seize the opportunity to outreach to
> interested community agencies, academics and government representatives in
> and around Nairobi to inform about the network, demonstrate the website
> and consult with different stakeholders on their needs and expectations
> about such a network.
> If you will be in the Nairobi area on March 12, 2010, we warmly invite
> your participation in this workshop. It will be held at the Sarova
> Panafric hotel, from 12:00pm - 4:30pm. While attendance at the workshop is
> free, numbers are limited to around 30 people, so we do require you to
> register. Registration deadline is March 5, 2010. To register, please fill
> out the online form that can be found here:
