Existing TPS for Yemenis extended:“In the fourth year of what the UN secretary general called the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, the Trump administration is once again demonstrating a disregard for basic humanitarian principles in its decision to merely extend Temporary Protected Status for some people from Yemen, but not allow recent arrivals to be covered by it.”

City Council repeals head tax: The Seattle City Council voted 7 to 2 Tuesday to repeal a tax to fund homelessness services and affordable housing that council members passed unanimously less than a month before.

Indigenous resistance, title make Trans Mountain pipeline extension ‘untenable,’ says economist: The Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is a high-risk investment for Canada and any future financial backers because it runs through unceded Indigenous lands, says one economist. D.T. Cochrane, an economic researcher with the Indigenous Network on Economies and Trade. He says the Texas oil giant Kinder Morgan’s April decision to suspend non-essential spending and the federal government’s subsequent nationalization of the controversial project are either ignorant to, or minimize, legal and financial risks that make the project “completely untenable.”

CALL FOR PAPERS: INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCES

Challenging Migrant Detention: Human Rights, Advocacy and Mental Health
As forcible displacement increases, notions of the unwanted “Other”, the “illegal” migrant, and the “bogus” refugee are increasingly prominent in public discourse of destination countries, lending support to stringent border control policies whereby states incarcerate asylum seekers, undocumented migrants and other foreign nationals in immigration detention centres, prisons and camps. This structural violence primarily targets racialized populations from the Global South. This international conference brings together researchers in social sciences, human rights and mental health, along with practitioners, advocates and migrants, to discuss global trends and avenues for change in immigration detention. Call for papers deadline is 1 February 2018. More information available here.

Design History Society 2018: Design and Displacement
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimates that in 2016, some 65.6 million people were forcibly displaced worldwide – a number not seen since the end of World War II. On average, 20 people were driven from their homes every minute. The challenges faced by vast numbers of migrants and refugees uprooted by war, persecution, ecological crises, natural disasters, or even relocating in search of economic opportunity, are often urgent, and, unfortunately, all too familiar. The movement of populations has spurred – and continues to spur – great changes in the cultural landscape in general and design in particular, both positive and problematic. Displacement creates opportunities for cross-cultural dialogues and inspires design solutions, whether they be related to objects used for disaster relief, temporary housing for displaced persons during wartime or following natural disasters, or more substantial and lasting interventions into the landscape, such as the exponential and necessary growth of cities. Taking place from 6-8 September 2018, this conference will examine displacement and attendant issues from a design perspective. More information available here.
