Emerging scholars network

Connecting early-career scholars working on refugee and forced migration issues from around the world.

ESN group shot

The Kaldor Centre’s next-generation Emerging Scholars Network (ESN) is a global group of graduate and early-career scholars whose work impacts on refugee and migration issues. Sharing ideas across disciplines and institutions, members bring expertise in areas as diverse as migration law, refugee mental health, history, political theory, and climate change-related displacement.

Our purpose

Through the network, up-and-coming scholars have opportunities to:

  • engage directly with senior academics and global policymakers 

  • connect and collaborate with other members of the Network

  • hear and learn about new research and job opportunities 

  • participate in the ESN’s annual workshop, and

  • showcase their research with the Kaldor Centre.
