The 14th annual Centre for Refugee Studies Student Caucus Conference: Beyond Durable Solutions.

The international refugee regime in its current form promotes the three durable solution model: local integration, third country resettlement, and voluntary repatriation. However, these so-called solutions have been critiqued by scholars and practitioners alike for being deeply inadequate for meeting the needs of the vast majority of displaced communities and for not addressing the drivers and trends of forced displacement. Thus, we invite submissions that engage and discuss strategies that are contextually specific to the historical, geographical, and structural explanations that characterize displacement.
