Purpose of the Hub
The Refugees and Forced Migration Learning Hub is dedicated to collating and communicating evidence on the role of faith actors in responding to refugee and IDP needs, with a view to influencing policy and praxis. Over the coming years, the Hub will:
- Conduct an in-depth Scoping Study to map existing best practice and challenges across a range of contexts
- Begin addressing the evidence gaps and questions raised by the Scoping Study through collaboration with research projects, and by commissioning its own research
- Widely disseminate evidence, learnings and recommendations to practitioners and policy makers for implementation
Refugee Hub Co-Chairs:
|Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh, Associate Professor, Reader in Human Geography
Co-Director of the Migration Research Unit, University College London
|Atallah Fitzgibbon, Policy and Strategy Manager, Islamic Relief Worldwide
In 2017, the JLI Refugee Hub completed the first part of their scoping study focused on the role of local faith communities in urban displacement and localization. Click the link below to read the first scoping study.
