IDS D-HUM project researchers to speak at DIIS roundtable event on 7 June 2023
IDS researchers who are part of the Diaspora Humanitarianism in Complex Crises (D-Hum) research project will join other speakers at the project's roundtable to be held at the Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS) in Copenhagen on 7 June 2023. These researchers include Prof. Karuti Kanyinga, Dr. Obadia Okinda and PhD students within the project including Sahra, Abdirahman and Fatima.
The roundtable will discuss findings from the research project focusing on transnational ties between different Somali localities- from Mogadishu to Lasanod - and central diaspora hubs in African and Western countries, examining the intricacies and practices of emergency assistance, whether acute or long-term, and reflect on the lessons learnt and policy implications for supporting or collaborating with diaspora actors.
