International Workshop at the ISS The Hague on 18-19 October 2012

The International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) in The Hague and its partners are organizing an International Workshop on “Dislocation, Inclusion, and the Spaces of Identity – Youth and Children in the Arab World and the EU”. The workshop will be held on 18-19 October 2012 at the ISS and include participants from all consortium universities in Egypt, Jordan, UK, Germany and the Netherlands.  

This International Workshop is aiming at comparing the situation of children and youth who are facing similar challenges though they seem to be living in different contexts, namely the Arab World and Europe.

Conflict and regional integration can both be reasons for dislocation. In the first case it is about seeking refuge; in the second it is finding opportunities. Whether it is peace or conflict, the changing context affects children and youth more than any other social group. They are more vulnerable to trauma and discrimination, they struggle with coping in a new environment, and they have to adapt to changes sometimes beyond their comprehension.

Six panels are to bring together researchers, policy makers, media people, international experts, civil activists and young voices:

1-The road to dignity and safety: Securing and protecting children and youth

2-Aliens or Humans: Receiving the Other in host societies

3-Relief and Social Work: Challenges and opportunities

4-Looking Different: Difference, Discrimination and Diversity

5-Constructed Identities: The Agency of Children and Young People

6-Exchanging Stories, Narrating Truths: Giving Children and Young People a Voice

Have a look at the attached FLYER INT´L WORKSHOP8 for more information and the preliminary program.

We look forward to seeing you in The Hague soon!
