    In honor of mental health awareness month, the GRN and the Think Tank Programme on War, Conflict and Global Migration would like to create a space for you to discuss the challenges you face as graduate students.

    What types of support would you like to receive from universities? Is your institution providing Programmes and support that contributes positively to your mental health?

    We warmly welcome your participation in this unrecorded session that focuses on your journey through academia during Covid-19 and beyond.

    Bava Dharani will share examples of incidents where universities are being exploitative or inconsiderate towards researchers and students, as in the viral tweets about the email exchange between a professor from York and a student from Myanmar, the mass lay-offs of Teaching Assistants in numerous universities in the USA for wanting to unionize and the locking down of student halls and issuing of expensive compulsory food rations in the UK during COVID-19 lockdown.

    Anisa Abeytia will share her experiences working internally in the university, with regards to self care and mental health.

    Finally, we will open up the space to allow anyone to share their experiences, problems they have encountered, issues they wish to be supported on.

    This event welcomes different narratives of how people rethink, overcome or transform their own barriers and borders. Through a guided conflict mapping process, we will channel our internal and external conflict trajectories, dynamics, patterns and styles to collectively experience what moving beyond our borders might feel like. We already tend to cope with "borders" through our own subconscious paths, but this process will open up the space to shed light on some of these paths and tap into simple hidden resources or tools.

    A panel discussion on the implementation of residence permits for victims of domestic violence as foreseen by art. 59 of the Istanbul Convention. The idea would be to invite four or five NGO practitioners from different countries who are working with these permits, and perhaps a GREVIO member.

    When it comes to anti-discrimination laws, good intentions do not always lead to positive change on the ground. This panel discussion is aimed at shedding light on particular instances where policymakers in India and Europe failed to take into consideration the social realities of particularly vulnerable groups.

    The panel discussion is hosted by Amit Anand and Preethi Lolaksha Nagaveni from the Think Tank on Human Rights, Family and Gender together with GRN Think Tank Programme Associate, Jasmin Beck.
