CIC Victoria: The Challenges facing the Internally Displaced Peoples of Afghanistan
November 23, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am PST
Join us for a discussion on the current situation of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Afghanistan and what Canada is doing, and should do, to help alleviate the dire situation that confronts many Afghans. We’ll speak with Dr. Wais Aria, a medical doctor specializing in psychosocial interventions for IDPs in his home country of Afghanistan and who himself was evacuated in August from Kabul, and Corey Levine, formerly with UN Women, returning most recently from Kabul in June, and who is helping support IDP resettlement efforts remotely. This event is hosted by Dr. Athena Madan with RRU’s Department of Human Security and Peacebuilding Program and Chris Kilford from the Canadian International Council.
