Hi Amirah,

I have an edited volume coming out in April: Digital Lifeline? ICTs for Refugees and Displaced Persons (MIT Press). It is not exclusively HCI but will provide important contextual information that would likely be of interest to HCI researchers. 

There have also been several papers at the ACM ICTD conferences in the past few years.

Best of luck and I look forward to your list!

Subject: [Air-L] Refugee & Forced Migration HCI Research: Help Request

Dear AOIR Community,

We are a group of interdisciplinary HCI researchers focusing on the
technology related issues of people experiencing forced migration, such as
refugees, asylum seekers, internally displaced, and the undocumented.

This year at the ACM International Conference on Supporting Group Work
(GROUP) we came together in a workshop called, ‘Refugees & Technology:
Determining the Role of HCI Research’, links below. As a result of this
workshop we would like to build a curated list of scholarly resources that
support generative and ethical research in the area of Forced Migration -
HCI studies. We intend to make this list publicly available in order to
support this growing research area.

We are asking for your help! If you know of HCI-related refugee or forced
migration work, or other resources that you think could inform and support
this work, could you send us the citation or link? Resources we are looking
for include scholarly texts, projects, conferences, or anything else you
think could help. Bookmark the workshop website for updates to this
community resource!

Thank you in advance for your help!


Amirah Majid on behalf of the workshop participants.
