Refugee-Led Research Hub
The RLRH aims to support scholars and researchers from displaced communities, predominantly in Eastern Africa, to be leaders in knowledge production and decision making in the field of Forced Migration Studies and humanitarian research. RLRH endeavours to bring its name to life: displaced scholars and researchers comprise a large majority of the organisational structure and leadership, supported by non-refugee colleagues who work to transfer their skills and privileges for the enrichment of refugee colleagues. With refugees at the centre of organisation leadership, and as the explicit contributors of all academic and research activities, RLRH aims to build an intellectually rich community of scholars and researchers who best understand displacement and are able to speak to the issues with authority, authenticity, and force.
