The Centre for Refugee Studies Student Caucus is an enthusiastic, energetic group of graduate and undergraduate students at York University who study, research, and do volunteer and advocacy work on refugee and forced migration issues. Many of us are motivated to engage in these issues because of both personal experiences of migration and forced migration, as well as relationships with friends and family who have undergone such experiences–others are simply interested and engaged. Our Caucus has organized ten annual student conferences since 2006, as well as holding seminars, social events, and working to promote student involvement in volunteer opportunities and the broader activities of the Centre for Refugee Studies (CRS).
Officially, Student Caucus represents Certificate and Diploma students of the Centre for Refugee Studies, however we also welcome all students interested in forced migration. Students are represented on the executive committee of the CRS through the caucus.
Our approach is interdisciplinary, and some of our main specializations include: political science, equity studies, education, social science, anthropology, sociology, international development studies, development studies, gender, sexuality and women’s studies, geography, social work, etc.
