Migration-Development Nexus:

The Cases of Refugees in Bangladesh and the Lake Chad Basin

 

Tuesday, 16 November 2021,

11:00- 12:00, CET (Warsaw)

Language: English

 

The migration-management crisis in Europe in 2015 drew attention to the root causes of migration and the role of aid in mitigating the risks of massive irregular movement of people. This discussion will focus on the complex relationship between development assistance and migration by focusing on two case studies: the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and the “invisible” refugees in the Lake Chad Basin. What are the root causes of migration of these people and what effect does international engagement have on  such crises? Does aid address the root causes of migration? What is the EU’s role in the global response?

 

Speakers:

  • Viljar Haavik, Junior Research Fellow, Research Group for Peace, Conflict and Development Programme, NUPI: “‘Unable to leave’: Refugee management and the forgotten refugee crises in the Lake Chad Basin”
  • Patryk Kugiel, Senior Analyst, Asia-Pacific Programme, PISM: “Rohingya refugee crisis in Bangladesh and the role of aid”

Moderator: Morten Boas, Norwegian Institute of International Affairs
