Migration and displacement

Children and young people are on the move all over the world, seeking safety, protection and relief from a variety of conflicts.

UN figures on migration show that children are dramatically over-represented among the world’s refugees.

Researchers in the Faculty of Humanities and Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health focus on the impact of migration and displacement on young people. By learning from the experiences of these children, we are in a position to advise NGOs and policymakers on what more needs to be done to support the world's most vulnerable citizens.
