Elsadig Elsheikh, the director of the Global Justice Program at the Haas Institute, will be presenting his recent report, "Moving Targets: An Analysis of Global Forced Migrationat a colloquium sponsored by the Center for African Studies.

The global refugee crisis has reached epic proportions. The international community has fallen short in creating an immediate and sustainable response to accommodate millions of forcibly displaced people seeking refuge from war, political instability, and climate change-induced forces. 

The "Moving Targets" report explores the often-overlooked trends that have contributed to the drastic increase in displacement and forced migration, such as neoliberal forces, an overreach by the state in securitization and militarization, and the climate crisis. The talk seeks to offer policy interventions to help imagining an equitable and more inclusive global refugee regime that humanizes refugees.

Elsadig’s research focuses on the themes and social dynamics relating to Africa’s large-scale land deals, global food system, human and indigenous peoples' rights, state and citizenship, and structural barriers to an inclusive society.
