The Refugee-Led Research Hub has published its first Annual Report, for the period 2021-2022, summarising its activities over this year.
Founded in October 2020, the RLRH supports aspiring researchers with lived experience of forced displacement to become leaders in the field of Refugee and Forced Migration Studies. A majority of RLRH colleagues and scholars identify as current or former refugees, asylum seekers, IDPs, and stateless persons. The RLRH is physically based in Nairobi and Oxford.
It has two main areas of activity: 1) a series of academic programmes, and 2) a portfolio of research projects, led by researchers with lived experience of displacement.
