Conference | Subject : Call for Abstracts
Conference Date :24-Oct-2016 To 25 Oct 2016

Forced Migration is also expected to increase with the growing concerns of climate change. The IPCC Working Group II in its assessment report in 2014, explicitly recognized that “Climate change over the 21st Century is projected to increase displacement of people” and “can indirectly increase risks of violent conflicts in the form of civil war and inter¬group violence by amplifying well¬documented drivers of these conflicts such as poverty and economic shocks”TISS in partnership with IFRC proposes an international  round­table conference to engage with questions such as those posed above to facilitate discourse amongst the participants   on   the   understanding   of   forced   migration   and   displacement   in   the context of both natural as well as man­made crises.
