Beyond the crisis


Beyond the crisis: Communication, engagement and accountability in forced migration settings 

Conflicts, natural disasters and inequality have forced more than 70 million people from their homes—the highest number ever. One of the challenges facing displaced people and host communities is access to reliable information. What role can media play in the context of forced migration? What can be done to provide life-saving information to affected communities? And how can media development organizations contribute to community engagement and accountability mechanisms? 

This conference brings together refugees, communication professionals and humanitarian experts to discuss issues of access to information and dialogue in forced migration settings. It presents a unique opportunity for participants from all involved sectors to share their knowledge and experiences, present their organizations and discuss cooperation opportunities.
