Over two sessions on 24 and 25 May, a range of diverse research partners will showcase findings and initiatives that can support GCR stakeholders in making evidence-based decisions and policies based on reliable, independent research conducted by academics and persons with lived experience of forced displacement.

Key donors and supporters will also discuss the importance of producing actionable and relevant research that is led, co-designed and co-implemented with refugees and forcibly displaced persons.
