Cambridge Refugee Hub (CRH)

Cambridge Refugee Hub advances research, practice and policy at the University of Cambridge. 

Convenor: Tugba Basaran


The Cambridge refugee hub was established in 2021 to create awareness and solidarity with refugees, and to stand with refugees as a Cambridge community. 108.4 million people are forcibly displaced. Many lack access to basic rights, such as education, health care, housing and freedom of movement. The alleviation of these problems requires collaboration.

CRH works through collaboration with those affected by wars, conflicts, and crises, together with the interdisciplinary expertise of the university, to address the plight of displaced populations at home and abroad. CRH provides research, outreach and impact (and limited teaching). Through its programming, it also encourages wider research, practice and policy across the collegiate university. Further, CRH serves as a point of contact on refugees and displaced persons across the University of Cambridge, platforming various initiatives, such as Cambridge for Refugees (see below).
