eSeminar: Refugees, IDPs and Peacebuilding
Description: Conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Libya and Yemen continue to fuel a regional refugee crisis on an unprecedented scale. According to the UNHCR, there are more than three million Syrian refugees in the region, and an additional 6.5 million internally displaced persons (IDPs). Outside of Syria are another 3.5 million Iraqi IDPs, as well as large numbers of refugees and IDPs from Libya, Yemen and the Palestinian Territories. The crisis is also straining countries that have opened their doors: Turkey and Lebanon and Jordan had by the beginning of 2015 accepted over 1.7 million, 1.3 million and 750,000 Syrian refugees, respectively. The situation of refugees and IDPs is both a humanitarian catastrophe and a complex and ongoing challenge to peace and security in the region. In this context, the Centre for Security Governance, in partnership with the Balsillie School of International Affairs and Wilfrid Laurier University's Global Studies Department, hosted the third event in our eSeminar series on the theme of "Refugees, IDPs and Peacebuilding in the Contemporary Middle East." Our distinguished panelists discussed how the refugee and IDP crisis should factor into peacebuilding approaches throughout the region. The event took place on Wednesday November 25 from 12:00PM to 1:30PM EST.
