This workshop inaugurates a network of early career social scientists researching the racial and gendered dynamics of migration and bordering in the Global South. It emerges in response to the ongoing situation of anti-black and anti-immigrant violence in Tunisia, precipitated by statements President Saied made calling for the deportation of sub-Saharan African migrants and stoking racial violence against them. As scholars of the region point out, racialized discourses regarding sub-Saharan migration are not new to Tunisia nor new to North Africa at large.

Life in a refugee camp is often seen as an impermanent thing, where in reality it actually becomes a big part of a refugee’s life. Inclusive and healthy environment in a camp is thus very important for the well-being of both the displaced and host communities. From 2018 to 2022, working with the Rohingya refugees as well as the surrounding Bangladeshi hosting communities in Ukhiya-Teknaf area, has never been about one particular space, but about collaborating together in a crisis situation to overcome the unexpected challenges over time.
In this presentation, Professor Elisa Cavatorta develops a novel conjoint analysis to study the preferences and priorities of ordinary citizens regarding the components of potential peace agreements between people in conflict. Her application is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This approach elicits preferences over competing issues, reveals acceptable and unacceptable trade-offs and visualizes the Zone Of Possible Agreement (ZOPA): the set of mutually acceptable peace deals, and within that set identifies cooperative bargaining solutions.
The presentation will provide a brief overview of the history of former Yugoslavia and focus on its violent break-up, especially on the case of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

There is consensus that humanitarian actors should respond to the mental health and psychosocial needs of displaced populations through multisectoral action and coordination. Multisectoral programming may enable the integration of mental health and psychosocial support with services designed to address critical social and structural determinants of mental health including poverty, stigma, safety and security, and social connectedness and cohesion. In this presentation, Professor M.
Professor Yang-Yang Zhou will be presenting the research of her new book project ‘Rejecting Coethnicity: the Politics of Migrant Exclusion by Minoritized Citizens’. How are migrants received by host countries and communities? A substantial body of scholarship on migrant reception focuses almost exclusively on majority White citizens in the Global North and their (negative) attitudes towards migrants from the Global South.
