In collaboration with Warwick University's Poverty Research Network, ENH and ESS organized an International Conference on Women, Poverty and Migration on November 9, 2017, at the BRAC Centre. The conference invited intellectuals and academics from a variety of disciplines to present their papers, with the goal of creating an interdisciplinary platform to discuss gender, poverty and migration. Professor Ann Stewart, School of Law, University of Warwick, said "We do not understand poverty holistically. Poverty is seen as uniform; its multidimensionality becomes lost when we talk of the impoverished." The conference was the second of its kind conducted by the Poverty Research Network and poses the question: 'Can other disciplines add a new understanding to the dimensions of poverty?' The conference had three sessions where the paper presentations mostly dealt with gender, poverty and migration, as the title of the conference suggests. Professor Firdous Azim, ENH, presented her paper titled ‘The Words that Govern Us: The Discourse around Women, Poverty’, and Dr. Rifat Mahbub, ENH, presented her work titled ‘Poverty, Migration and The Pen: Voices of Bangladeshi Migrants from ‘below’’. The conference also had a lively and interactive session, where Professor Firdous Azim was in conversation with poets Ayesha Siddiqua (book Ahoto Ami) and Md. Mukul Hossaine (book Me Migrant). The well-attended conference concluded with lively open discussion between presenters and attendees, students and academics.
