Although protractedness clearly holds a temporal dimension, this panel seeks to engage a conversation about protracted displacement include and beyond temporality that assesses other constraints and opportunities between local events and global structure, through a political economy framework.

Our panel of experts will be addressing topics from their research such as EU-policy (Morten Bøås, NUPI); the economy of protracted displacement (Tewodros Kebede, Fafo Institute for Labor and Social Research); protracted (im)mobility (Synnøve Bendixsen, UiB) and protracted aspirations (Sarah Tobin, CMI). The conversation will be moderated by Benjamin Etzold (BICC) who heads the Horizon 2020 project TRAFIG.
