About Us

Established in June 2008, the mandate of CARFMS is to foster an independent community of scholars dedicated to:

  • advancing and disseminating Canadian refugee and forced migration research;
  • establishing active partnerships and collaborations among researchers, teachers, practitioners, policy makers and advocates; and,
  • supporting publications, conferences, and other fora that contribute to open and inclusive communication and networking around issues relating to refugee and forced migration studies in Canada and elsewhere.
