    Migration under the conditions of socio-ecological change

    The event explored how socio-ecological factors such as climate change and political instabilities are threatening livelihoods and forcing migration across the world. Increased vulnerability, conflict and insecurity are only some of the consequences as individuals move within their own nations or across borders in search of new forms of resources, assets and activities to survive.

    The expert panel consisted of Luca Puttemann, Regional Awareness Raising Officer at the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Regional Office in Dakar, Senegal who coordinates projects such as Street Art Together ; Dr. Kees van der Geest, documentary film maker and Head of the Migration and Environment Section at the United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS); and Dr. Bayes Ahmed, lecturer at the Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction (IRDR) at University College London (UCL) whose background includes research in the field of disaster risk reduction (DRR).

    After last semester's productive Women in (Transformation) Research event, this 'Strategic Meeting' was inspired from the group's feedback to keep conversation going as there is a need for discussion, exchange and and change. Critically, there were calls to accelerate the ideas from meeting with tangible goals and next steps. Whether this entails individual training opportunities or an approach based on structural change will be discussed.

    Once again we invite and strongly encourage everyone to join. We aim for a collaborative & bottom-up process and thus welcome the entire THESys community to participate to ensure perspectives from all genders and career stages are heard, included and integrated.
