Refugees: The Role of the University of Gothenburg


At present, about 65 million people are refugees. In order to handle the present situation and ensure sustainable ways forward, there is a great need for research and education. Education is of crucial importance to both the individual and the future of war-torn nations. Research generates new knowledge, which needs to be disseminated and put to practical use in various ways.

As a university, we have a responsibility to safeguard values such as academic freedom, humanism and human rights. We have a responsibility to contribute with our knowledge as an education provider and as a research institution, but also as an employer.

Here we give you a quick overview of what we do at the University and how you can get in contact with us.
