In the summer of 2019, I was part of a diverse group of, passionate, university students who were selected to participate in an international seminar on refugee issues in Malawi. The main objective of the Seminar was to learn from each other’s knowledge and deepen our “collective understanding of issues and opportunities facing refugee youth and host communities in Malawi” Together, we composed a group of 15 students. Five of us were Canadian students from various universities across Canada. Five others were Malawian students from the University of Malawi, Chancellor College. The final group composed refugee, students from the Jesuit Worldwide Learning in Dzaleka refugee camp. We were provided with two Seminar coordinators Virginie Tardif from Canada, and Lizzie Dube from Malawi. Working were also guided by to two academic advisors Dr. Glen Peterson (a professor in the department of History at the University of British Columbia) and Dr. Peter Mvula (a Senior Research Fellow in Rural Livelihoods at the Centre for Social Research, University of Malawi, Chancellor College). This is a reflective essay of the one-month spent in Malawi as a junior researcher.
