Victoria will be the host city for the 2017 Annual Conference of the Canadian Association for Refugee and Forced Migration Studies (CARFMS). “Forgotten Corridors: Global Displacement & the Politics of Engagement” is the conference theme. The Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives at the University of Victoria will host the conference from May 15 to 18, 2017. CARFMS17 will invite researchers, policy makers and activists from diverse disciplines and regions to discuss the parameters of global displacement, especially the experiences of those taking routes less traveled. We especially encourage filmmakers or producers to submit video documentaries.
