Call for policy papers: Durable solutions to displacement in Africa

The Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria is calling for papers on durable solutions to displacement in Africa.

Most refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Africa remain displaced for prolonged periods of time. Often, their rights are highly restricted, and they live in precarious conditions which undermine their ability to attain durable solutions. The absence of durable solutions to the plights of many displaced persons affects their lives in displacement and beyond.

Various factors inhibit the realisation of durable solutions in Africa. While these factors are complex, much of them boil down to social, economic, political, and environmental conditions. To address these challenges, several calls have been made for the better implementation, and even for the re-conceptualisation of the ‘traditional’ durable solutions (voluntary repatriation, local integration, and resettlement). Although a shift in understanding durable solutions from a solely humanitarian-based approach to approaches that include development, peacebuilding, and prevention has taken place, perspectives on the subject that reflect the views of displaced persons and responses tailored to the prevailing circumstances of Africa are limited. It is therefore important to stimulate conversations around human rights-based durable solutions that examine existing practices in light of the rights of forcibly displaced persons and propose ways of enhancing the effectiveness of durable solutions in Africa.

Call for Papers: 10th Annual Disability Rights Conference ( Migration, Displacement and Disability: A Human Rights Response)

The Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria, hosts an annual conference on disability rights in an African context during the month of November. The inaugural disability rights conference was held in 2013. The annual conference serves as a platform for convening dialogue amongst key stakeholders on disability rights, and to spotlight pertinent and emerging disability rights concerns in the African region.

In 2022, the conference theme is ‘Migration, Displacement and Disability in Africa: A Human Rights Response

The main focus of the conference will be on respecting, protecting, promoting and fulfilling the rights of persons with disabilities who migrate or are displaced. The conference has two main objectives: 1) to critically appraise laws, policies, practices, programmes, polities and ideologies that relate to migration and displacement of persons with disabilities in Africa and 2) to suggest remedial responses (domestically, regionally and globally) to address violations of the rights of persons with disabilities as migrants and internally displaced persons (IDPs). The conference will be convened by the Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria, South Africa, on 17 and 18 November 2022. It is anticipated that authors will rework papers presented at this conference.
