Research Carnival 2023
11th – 13th September 2023, Copenhagen
Research Carnival: Learning from MHPSS in Climate Change, Conflict and Migration.
Over the last decade conflicts, instability and climate-related disasters such as those in Syria, Pakistan, Yemen, Central America and the Ukraine have resulted in significant mass migration and had profoundly negative impacts on mental health and psychosocial wellbeing. Different parts of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement have responded along with other organisations. This Research Carnival provides an opportunity to bring together those who have been working in mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) to showcase and share their experiences of undertaking research, monitoring and evaluation in conflict and migration settings to assist with our learning for the future. The programme will include a keynote address by Wietse Tol, who will consider the priorities for a 10-year research agenda for MHPSS in Humanitarian Responses, and a series of presentations from people across the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and beyond.
The Research Carnival will begin at 14.00 Central European Time on Monday 11th September and conclude on Wednesday 13th September at 13.00 Central European Time (local time in Copenhagen).
The IFRC’s Psychosocial Reference Centre (IFRC PS Centre) will host the Research Carnival but those attending will need to pay for their meals, transfers, flights and hotels.
Registration is now closed. If you wish to get in touch with the organizers, please email Sarah Kate van der Walt, email@example.com, Sarah Davidson firstname.lastname@example.org, and Anna Tarsetti, email@example.com, with the subject “Research Carnival”.
