Conference on Displacement and Reconciliation
Conflict Research Centre, Saint Paul University, Ottawa
9-10 June 2011

Experiences in places from Bosnia, Rwanda and Cambodia to Colombia, Iraq 
and Sudan have raised important, under-examined questions about the 
relationship between reconciliation and the experience and resolution of 
displacement. The concept of reconciliation touches all phases of the 
displacement cycle. Particularly in the aftermath of conflict and human 
rights violations, the challenge of reconciling displaced persons, their 
former neighbours and other actors such as their states of origin 
represents a critical factor affecting the success of return, 
resettlement and reintegration processes involving millions of refugees 
and internally displaced persons (IDPs).

Drawing on a wide range of disciplinary perspectives and the 
contributions of researchers and practitioners from both the global 
North and South, the aim of the conference is to examine and enhance 
understanding of the relationship between reconciliation and 
displacement, in theory and in practice. The conference will examine the 
implications of displacement for reconciliation processes and, on the 
other hand, how the concept of reconciliation can enhance understandings 
of the nature, experience and resolution of displacement. Papers are 
welcome that explore the following questions, amongst others:

-What are the conceptual, logistical, strategic and inter-personal 
challenges associated with advancing reconciliation in the aftermath of 
large-scale displacement?
-How do key actors including states, humanitarian organizations, host 
communities, and members of displaced persons’ communities of origin 
figure in reconciliation processes involving uprooted populations?
-How do displaced persons themselves understand, contribute to and 
challenge the pursuit of reconciliation, from the local to international 
levels?
-What do past experiences in countries such as Rwanda, Bosnia, Cambodia, 
Guatemala, Mozambique and Germany tell us about the relationship between 
reconciliation and displacement? What insights do these cases hold for 
researchers, humanitarians, policymakers and human rights advocates?
-How might reconciliation figure in efforts to resolve contemporary 
displacement situations in countries such as Colombia and Sudan?

Submission of abstracts
Individuals wishing to present a paper at the conference are requested 
to submit a max. 500-word abstract and a 200-word biographical statement
