The Refugee Studies Centre continues to operate in the midst of the current COVID-19 pandemic, albeit under restricted circumstances. For general enquiries, please contact the Centre Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. For enquiries about RSC news and publications, please contact our Communications Officer at email@example.com. For enquiries about the 2020 International Summer School in Forced Migration (which has now been cancelled), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The COVID-19 pandemic has substantial implications for forced migrants across the world, affecting not only their ability to move to safety, but also their health, access to work and income, and interaction with family and networks of support. Over the months and years ahead, the study of the implications of COVID-19 for the security and safety of forced migrants will become an important part of scholarship at the RSC.
We will be in touch with further updates in due course.
