The purpose of the Knowledges sub-page is to serve as a conduit between academics, community members (e.g. museums, social workers, blog writers) and activists. The page will function to show how community knowledge and academic knowledge is produced. It will also serve to further strengthen the political self-awareness and the political education of activists who work toward changing refugee politics.
The page will aim to demonstrate how academics within a formal institutional setting and members outside the bounds of Universities use and apply knowledge about refugees and migrants and how this knowledge can be applied to improve understanding of migrants and refugees’ conditions and ultimately change the current politics. This page will provide links to academic and community knowledge, which show the historical and contemporary context of refugees and migrants’ situation. The page will include writings, which examine the processes of marginalization and exclusion which migrants experience as well as their activism and agency.The Knowledges subpage within its multiple frameworks i.e. formal/informal institutional settings will aim to support pluralism and include voices of those marginalised as well as provide and open a space for interrogating/debating power, privilege, and ethical concerns.
Finally, by linking writings by academics, community members and activists, the page aims to further the process of refugee and migrant activism and facilitate a dialogue between several working groups.
