Description from host: During this event Tanya Aberman (York University, Canada) and Rebecca Murray (University of Sheffield, UK) will engage in conversation about the parallel work they have undertaken to date, as campaigners, practitioners and academics in Canada and the UK. The core objective underpinning their work (pursued independently of each other) has been the creation and implementation of sustainable opportunities in higher education, for young people who hold insecure immigration status resulting from forced displacement (Murray, 2022; Murray, 2021; Villegas & Aberman, 2019). This conversation marks the start of a 12-month project to exchange knowledge and practice, create new connections and opportunities to co-produce knowledge with their respective community partners, young people experiencing displacement and institutions.
