Displacement, transitional justice and reconciliation: assumptions, challenges and lessons

Description

This podcast was recorded for the launch of Policy Briefing 9 on 'Displacement, transitional justice and reconciliation: assumptions, challenges and lessons ' on 25 June 2012 at the Canadian High Commission, London. 'Displacement, transitional justice and reconciliation: assumptions, challenges and lessons ' explores the links between reconciliation, forced migration and transitional justice, bringing into focus the ways in which displaced persons figure in transitional justice processes, and the potential implications of this involvement for reconciliation. The briefing addresses the interlinked conceptual and practical challenges associated with trying to advance reconciliation in post-conflict societies affected by large-scale displacement, and highlights some of the ways in which Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Modelling displacements and velocities Modelling displacements and velocities

Description

In this unit you will see first how to convert vectors from geometric form, in terms of a magnitude and direction, to component form, and then how conversion in the opposite sense is accomplished. The ability to convert between these different forms of a vector is useful in certain problems involving displacement and velocity, as shown in Section 2, in which you will also work with bearings. First published on Fri, 29 Jul 2011 as Modelling displacements and velocities. To find out more visit The Open University's Openlearn website.

Unlocking Protracted Displacement of Refugees and IDPs: Policy overview

Description

Unlocking Protracted Displacement of Refugees and IDPs: Somali and Iraqi displacements and policy responses. A workshop co-hosted by Refugee Studies Centre and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees at UNHCR London office on 6 March 2012. The protracted displacement of refugees and IDPs constitutes a pressing yet seemingly intractable challenge facing the international community. Since 2010, the RSC has led a project, with the support of the Norwegian government and in cooperation with IDMC, NRC and NUPI, that suggests a number of innovative strategies to better match international policy to the needs of those trapped in protracted displacement.

Survival Migration: Failed Governance and the Crisis of Displacement

Description

Alexander Betts, University of Oxford, gives a talk for the COMPAS seminar series The seminar, based on Betts' new book, explores the challenge of responding to new drivers of cross-border displacement that fall outside the existing refugee framework. Rather than beginning with particular causes of displacement - whether environmental change, food insecurity, or generalized violence - it offers a human rights-based framework through which to critically consider who, in a changing world, should be entitled to cross an international border and seek asylum. Based on extensive fieldwork, it grounds its analysis in an exploration of contemporary flight from three of the most fragile states in the world: Zimbabwe, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Somalia. It explains the massive variation Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

? Part 2)

Description

Part 2 of 3 of a series of podcasts from the special workshop 'The Arab Uprisings: Displacement and Migration', held at the Oxford Department of International Development on 16 May 2014 The aim of this workshop was to investigate the relation between migration and revolts. Some of the questions that were addressed include: What is the theoretical link between emigration, immigration and revolts? What have been the short-term and long-term impacts of the uprisings on mobility, migration and displacement in the Middle East and North Africa region in terms of patterns and trends and of institutional responses to movements induced by the Arab Uprising? What has been the impact of the Uprisings on broader processes of social change in the region? Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

African Studies and OCAF Seminar: Staying Out of Place: The Dialectics of Being and Becoming in Exceptional Spaces

Description

Simon Turner, Aalborg University, Denmark, gives a talk for the African Studies Centre Based on ethnographic fieldwork in two exceptional spaces, namely among Burundian refugees living clandestinely in Nairobi and living in a refugee camp in Tanzania, the article argues that displacement can be about staying out of place in order to find a place in the world in the future and is therefore closely linked to temporarily and temporariness. I suggest that the term dis-placement described this sense of not only being out of place but also being en route to a future. Burundians in the camp and the city are doing their best to remain out of place, in transition between a lost past and a future yet to come, and the temporary nature of their sojourn is maintained in everyday practices so that they Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Students are exposed to concepts and models important in supply chain planning with emphasis on key tradeoffs and phenomena. The course introduces and utilizes key tactics such as risk pooling and inventory placement, integrated planning and collaboration, and information sharing. Lectures, computer exercises, and case discussions introduce various models and methods for supply chain analysis and optimization. The class is recommended for Operations Management concentrators and is a first half-term subject. This course was also taught as part of the Singapore-MIT Alliance (SMA) programme as course number SMA 15.762J focuses on effective supply chain strategies for companies that operate globally with emphasis on how to plan and integrate supply chain components into a coordinated system.
