The World Bank-UNHCR Joint Data Center on Forced Displacement (JDC) is pleased to announce its 3rd Research Conference on Forced Displacement, organized in collaboration with the African School of Economics (ASE) and the World Bank. The conference will be held between September 19-21, 2024 in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, and online to accommodate for both in-person and virtual presentations. 


The core theme of the 3rd Research Conference is centered around the following topics:

  • Socioeconomic analysis of forced displacement in sub-Saharan Africa; 

  • Innovations in data-related forced displacement research (e.g., sampling, data collection); 

  • Operational and policy impact of data and evidence in displacement settings; 

  • Pan-African solutions for re-integration and inclusion of forcibly displaced communities.  


To be considered for inclusion on the program, completed papers or extended abstracts should be submitted to JDCconference@worldbank.org by May 15, 2024. Papers and extended abstracts can be submitted either in English or in French, but papers in French should also feature an abstract in English.
