Leeds Trinity University is hosting an in-person event to celebrate World Refugee Day 2022. We will affirm and recognise the value of refugees and Asylum seekers and provide an opportunity for both students and colleagues to understand the needs, challenges and vulnerabilities of refugees and Asylum seekers in an engaging and creative way, which facilitates meaningful reflection and action.

More specifically, this event is designed, intentionally, as an act of hospitality for Leeds Trinity University to welcome community groups, refugees and Asylum seekers on campus and to facilitate their input in the programme of events in an inclusive and respectful way that complements the institutional commitment to equity at both a policy and academic level.

Leeds Trinity University seeks to build a sustained relationship with our partners in the community, to look for shared interests and collaborative opportunities which contribute to social justice in our city. Our guest speaker Professor Jacqueline Stevenson MBE will discuss how a shared research endeavour to elevate the voices of the refugee community in academic spaces can be achieved through sensitive partnership working.
