Webinar recording | In Different Voices: refugee and migrant communities' engagement with conflict resolution
with Anet Kate
pre-recorded | Online
This webinar draws on the findings from a 2-3 year research project “Engagement of the Auckland Refugee & New Migrant Communities with Conflict Resolution” conducted in the Culture & Society Department of AUT.
This study explored the challenges faced by refugee (or 'resettled') and migrant populations when engaging with conflict resolution in New Zealand. Three groups were interviewed in-depth: 16 refugee community leaders, 8 conflict resolution professionals and 9 policy advisors in the area of former refugees and new migrants.
Anet shares the authors’ analysis of the findings, feedback from participants and interested professionals since publication of the first major outcomes article, themes that emerged from the interviews, and most importantly, what we could learn for our work as conflict resolvers.
