Morten Bøås (NUPI), Tewodros Kebede (Fafo), Synnøve Bendixsen (UiB) and Sarah Tobin (CMI) in conversation with Benjamin Etzold (BICC). 

In this webinar a panel of leading migration researchers gather to discuss the concept of protractedness in relation to displacement. The discussion of protractedness looks to material and structural conditions shaping different actors’ experiences and perspectives of protractedness.

Join the webinar on Zoom. 

Although protractedness clearly holds a temporal dimension, this panel seeks to engage in a conversation about protracted displacement including and beyond temporality. Through a political economy framework they will also assess other constraints and opportunities between local events and gloabal structures. 

Our panel of experts will be addressing topics from their research such as EU-policy (Morten Bøås, NUPI); the economy of protracted displacement (Tewodros Kebede, Fafo Institute for Labor and Social Research); protracted (im)mobility (Synnøve Bendixsen, UiB) and protracted aspirations (Sarah Tobin, CMI). The conversation will be moderated by Benjamin Etzold (BICC) who heads the Horizon 2020 project TRAFIG.
