This forum will explore the causes, experiences, and responses surrounding the “Refugee Crisis” in Africa. Building upon reflections from the 2016 Forum, which focused on the refugee crisis as a shared human condition and which brought in deep biblical and theological insights, we will seek to deepen our engagement with contextual and historical analyses, thematic explorations, and case studies specific to the African community.
