UNICA – Academic Refuge

Worldwide, there are 21 million refugees fleeing their war-torn countries or being persecuted and forced to flee as a result of their beliefs and public engagement. Europe became a new home for 6 percent of those displaced, who are now trying to rebuild their personal as well as professional lives. The ACADEMIC REFUGE project arises from the need to provide refugees and displaced scholars with the necessary support to continue their academic careers on European campuses.

The two overlapping project objectives are:

  • Improve the capacity of European universities to assist refugees and threatened academics
  • Promote greater respect for academic freedom and greater protection for Higher Education values
