79.5 million people were forcibly displaced at the end of 2019. Many lack access to basic rights, such as education, health care, housing and freedom of movement. The alleviation of these problems requires collaboration. The Centre and its Refugee Hub serve as the point of contact on refugees and displaced persons at the University of Cambridge. The Refugee Hub brings together architecture, engineering, land economy, politics, law, history, education and public health to provide interdisciplinary approaches to alleviate the plight of displaced populations.
