“Parallel Displacements: The Syrian Civil War & Kurdish Migration in Turkey, 2015-2018” Date: 24 May 2018 (10:00-19:30) Venue: University of London Institute in Paris (ULIP)
This one-day workshop is being co-ordinated by ULIP's Erasmus Research Fellow, Idil Onen, and by Dr. Seref Kavak, lecturer at Sciences Po.
The Syrian civil war and its repercussions on governmental policies and military actions in the Middle East have generated displacement and conflict on a complex triangle of Syrian refugees, Kurdish people, and the Turkish state alongside international powers. Since the start of the Syrian war in 2011, Kurdish people have been displaced with increasing violence after the Turkish state ended its peace talks and began a large-scale military campaign near the Syrian border. At the same time, hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees have crossed the Turkish border fleeing civil war and state violence. This one-day workshop explores these two waves of migration which is synchronically experienced by Kurds within Turkey and Syria as well the Syrian refugees in Turkey. This workshop seeks to bring together researchers working in the field of migration, forced displacement and state violence in order to explore parallels between Kurdish migration, the Syrian civil war, and the refugee crisis.
