REFUGEE RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM
30 September and 1 October 2004
The First National Refugee Research Symposium will be held at Unitec New Zealand,
Mt Albert, Auckland.
The conference aims to broadly gather refugee researchers in New Zealand to share
research findings, compare and discuss methods, assist refugee communities to carry
out their own research and to coordinate collaboration across the country to avoid
unnecessary duplication.
The event is being organised by Bernard Guerin (The University of Waikato) along
with Stephen Dunstan of the Immigration Service, and UNITEC lecturer Ruth
Desouza and Andy Williamson from The Unitec Centre for Information Technology
Research (CITRUS).
