Refugee Day seminar

Responding to refugees in complex emergencies

Monday, 20 June
09:30 - 13:30

By The University of Edinburgh

You are warmly invited to an international webinar to mark World Refugee Day. The ongoing global refugee crisis has brought more attention on refugees, allowing further reflection on how researchers, policy makers and practitioners can continue to support people seeking safety, while protecting their dignity and human rights.

Our webinar aims to examine these topics, highlighting the importance of recognizing that the refugee experience encompasses numerous systemic structures which influence one’s short and long-term outcomes.

The event will include:

  • a keynote address by UN staff
  • a panel discussion
  • reflections on current refugee crisis
  • the screening of a documentary


This event has been organised jointly by the Global Refugee Health Research Network, The University of Edinburgh; Protracted Crisis Research Centre, University of the West of Scotland; Centre for Statelessness and Refugee Studies, Tata Institute of Social Sciences; and the Centre for Migration and Forced Displacement, Makerere University.


This is an online event
