Open Letter to the International Research Community

Dear colleagues,
On behalf of David FitzGerald (University of California at San Diego) and myself, I am writing to encourage you to sign an open letter that we have prepared in the context of growing media attention to the ongoing global refugee situation. While many of us have responded individually through media interviews, advocacy, op eds, etc, we believe that a collective open letter could be useful to build pressure on refugee-hosting governments – at national and regional levels – to do more. We have deliberately kept the language broad and inclusive in order to appeal to the broadest number of people. We would be grateful if you could circulate this call to interested colleagues and consider signing the letter yourself:

Best regards,
Christina Clark-Kazak
Acting Director, Centre for Refugee Studies, York University
