780x440 Refugee Week 22

Refugee Week is a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and people seeking sanctuary. Founded in 1998 and held every year around World Refugee Day on the 20 June, Refugee Week is a growing global movement. The 2022 theme for Refugee Week and World Refugee Week is ‘Healing’.


To mark Refugee Week 2022, King's College London will be hosting a range of events to highlight and celebrate the many ways that the King's community responds to the global issue of forced displacement and work to create opportunities for forcefully displaced people. The week-long campaign for Refugee Week 2022 at King’s will include events involving leading academics, people with lived experience and charities that support refugees and forced migrants.

King's Sanctuary Programme

The 10-year vision of the Sanctuary Programme is to realise the educational potential of forcibly displaced young people.

The Sanctuary Programme was formed in 2015 in response to the global issue of forced displacement, which affects more than 80 million people worldwide. The programme aims to initiate and lead on projects that create positive opportunities for young people whose education has been disrupted due to being displaced.
