Giving to the Refugee Studies Centre
The Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford, aims to build knowledge and understanding of the causes and effects of forced migration in order to help improve the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable people.
The RSC was first established at Queen Elizabeth House in 1982 by Dr Barbara Harrell-Bond who pioneered the study of refugees and forced migration. Thirty years on, the RSC remains a global leader in the development of understanding of forced migration and the need for independent, objective and critical scholarship has never been greater.
30th Anniversary Barbara Harrell-Bond Fund
In this 30th anniversary year, the RSC is proud to launch the 30th Anniversary Barbara Harrell-Bond Fund to support the development of the next generation of research, teaching and practice in refugee studies. The Fund will support four objectives to which donors can allocate their contributions helping us to sustain support for the most talented students and practitioners, especially those from the Global South, as well as ensuring the continuation and betterment of our efforts to advance refugee issues and develop a global community of academics, policymakers and practitioners working in the field of forced migration.
