Speaker information

Dr Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh (UCL Geography)

It is often assumed that refugees passively wait to receive assistance provided by the UN, host states and international organisations, but established refugees are also often active providers of assistance – they share food, shelter and increasingly cramped spaces with newly displaced people. Dr Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh will examine the nature and implications of what she calls ‘refugee-refugee humanitarianism’.
