A conference as part of Oxford Refugee Week, 18-19 June 2016

As part of Refugee Week 2016, the Refugee Studies Centre, in collaboration with Oxford City of Sanctuary, the national City of Sanctuary movement, and the British Red Cross, will host this two-day non-residential conference. With a focus on welcoming refugees through their journey towards protection and integration, the event will bring together academics, NGO practitioners, civil society groups, and refugees from across Europe to engage in action-oriented mutual learning. The event seeks to encourage dialogue and collaborative learning in relation to advocacy, practices of integration, and social and economic inclusion. Moving beyond describing current challenges, it will seek to identify good practices and opportunities for social change, focusing on how communities can become more welcoming, and how to break down the social and economic barriers refugees can face.
