Themed 'Beyond the Mediterranean', our one-day 2021 Refugee Week Conference seeks to understand and explore forcible displacement outside of the Mediterranean, which all too often receives next to no coverage across the UK's mainstream media.

With a mixture of panel discussions and keynote talks, we will be covering displacement contexts ranging from Rohingya refugees fleeing Myanmar and internally displaced peoples worldwide, to the UK's own hostile environment. Confirmed speakers include Tun Khin, President of Burmese Rohingya Organisation, Colin Yeo, founder of Free Movement, and Professor Laura Hammond, from the SOAS department of Development Studies.

As always, our overriding focus will be on creating open and inclusive dialogue which seeks sustainable, durable solutions to the injustices experienced by all those affected by forced displacement worldwide.
