Accounts of refugees fleeing Middle Eastern countries seem to abound in recent years. However, many have had to flee twice, three-times, or more. Multiple displacements across many countries complicates the challenges experienced by refugees who are seeking a durable solution. These “double-refugees” often find adjusting to new host-countries and spaces especially difficult as they attempt to engage in substantive home-making along the way.

Join us as we learn from the experiences of Salam Kanhoush, a Syrian refugee who fled Sudan in 2023. Salam will share the challenges he has experienced in his attempt to find a safe haven outside of two war-torn countries, his present insecurity, and his future hopes.

The conversation will be moderated by Research Director Sarah Tobin.

A light lunch will be served.
