The aim of the McGill Refugee Research Group is to develop the refugee research community at McGill by:

1. Connecting people across different faculties and departments with shared interests in refugees and forced migration;

2. Sharing information about activities and opportunities in this field at McGill and in Montreal; and

3. Hosting talks, workshops, film screenings and other events.


McGill Refugee Research Group activities are supported by an FRQSC team grant "Refugee protection and struggles for justice: From local to global contexts.
