On 15 September 2022, the German Institute of Development and Sustainability (IDOS), on behalf of the FFVT project, and the Local Engagement Refugee Research Network (LERRN) jointly organised the online workshop “Forced Migration Studies and Policy Dialogue: Promoting New Ways of Knowledge Production and Policy Transfer”. Invited participants met under Chatham House Rules. The workshop was structured around two sessions: Session one discussed why new ways of doing forced migration research are needed, and session two looked into how to implement such new ways. Each session featured brief impulses and discussions which brought in perspectives from German and Canadian government representatives, public and private research funders, refugee-led organisations and international forced migration researchers from the Global South, North and East.
