Over the course of Refugee Hosts’ research there has been a number of ways through which people have engaged with the project, including our ‘community of conversation,’ facilitated through various blog themes, networks and events.
It is still possible to engage with the project and members of the team. Please see below for more information:

Refuge in a Moving World Network
The Refuge in a Moving World Network (RIMW) is an initiative of the UCL Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) led by Prof Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh – the network brings together experts from across the UCL who work on displacement, forced migration, exile and conflict. It is grounded on the understanding that cross-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary research is essential to develop a full understanding of, and a means of responding to, the human, material and representational effects of intersecting processes of mass displacement around the world.
