Religion and the Crisis of Displaced Persons

Since 2000, the numbers of refugees and displaced persons have skyrocketed worldwide. These population movements have created vast challenges for the international community as well as for destination countries and local communities where refugees and displaced persons settle. Building on two years of collaborative work with the Institute for the Study of International Migration, the Berkley Center's Religion and the Crisis of Displaced Persons Project will examine the complex ways in which religion factors into the current crisis, including as a cause of conflict, an important aspect of peacebuilding, a fundamental part of the response system, and a source of resilience for displaced persons and affected communities. This year-long, center-wide effort will include a series of events on the topic and will culminate in a state-of-knowledge report to be released in fall 2020.
