University Refugee Forum: Re-connect! Lifelong Learning

Uni4Refugees: Broadening Diversity in Higher Education Institutions is a cooperation project of several Swiss higher education institutions under the joint lead of the University of Zurich (UZH) and the University of Geneva (UNIGE). The overall aim of the project is to foster the integration of refugees interested in studying into higher education, thus contributing to a sustainable integration that is in line with individual potential.

Uni4Refugees is very pleased to invite you to the University Refugee Forum on Friday, 17 June 2022, in Geneva. With the University Refugee Forum, Uni4Refugees wants to highlight the challenges that refugees face regarding further education and university integration, and discuss possible solutions.

The first part of the event is dedicated to the importance of continuing education opportunities for life in exile for refugees living in refugee camps or host societies. The second part focuses on career transitions in Switzerland. In the concluding panel, experts discuss innovative solutions from the perspective of refugee students and researchers, government, universities and civil society. 

Uni4Refugees cordially invites university staff working in the area of diversity and refugee integration, experts from the integration sector and students to join the event.

This event is held in English and French with simultaneous interpretation in French and English.
