Event description

Description

We invite scholars, students, policy makers, humanitarian workers, donors, media, activists, practitioners, officials, NGOs, community leaders, and other stakeholders to submit original short papers, discussions or concept notes on the Rohingya crisis or other cases of genocide, human rights violation, ethnic cleansing and collective violence. The conference theme is interdisciplinary in nature and will cover a range of topics especially targeting (but not limited to) the following:

  • Comparative perspectives on state-sponsored violence and genocide
  • Role of gender, religion and/or ethics in collective violence
  • Policy, identity, advocacy and citizenship
  • Exposure to risks, hazardous environments and climate change
  • Humanitarian field work and logistics
  • Social and economic transformations and their perceptions
  • Trauma, resilience and inter-generational transmission
  • Law, transitional Justice and conflict resolution
  • Forced migration
  • Perpetration and complicity
  • Media, representation and narratives of violence

Concurrently a professional photography exhibition (by renowned Photographer Mahmud) and follow-up discussion will be held at the venue, providing a visual narrative of the 2017 Rohingya crisis in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.

The conference is funded through the UCL Centre for Collective Violence, Holocaust and Genocide Studies (CCV) at the Institute of Advanced Studies, and is jointly organised by the UCL Institute for Risk Disaster Reduction (IRDR) and UCL CCV.
