Every Action Counts - A dialogue on academic solidarity with refugees
In this section:
This webinar marks the establishment of the GAIN Secretariat with a dialogue on how to apply scientific knowledge and academic expertise to burden- and responsibility sharing.
The Global Academic Interdisciplinary Network (GAIN) was launched in 2019 in response to the call embedded in the Global Compact on Refugees for research training and scholarships on refugee, statelessness and other forced displacement issues. It engages universities, academic alliances, research institutions, and UNHCR together with scholars and researchers who are forcibly uprooted.
