I argue that we as researchers can, and should, harness our computational skills to better understand and predict refugee movements. I reflect on the computational challenges of modelling refugees, and present a simulation case study example focused on the Northern Mali Conflict in 2012. Compared to UNHCR data… CONTINUE READING
