Following the award of 2016-2019 UCL Provost Strategic Discretionary Funding to develop a Humanitarian Institute, we are pleased to invite the UCL community and their collaborators to a UCL Humanitarian Summit on 22nd June 2017.

Start: June 22, 2017 09:00 AM

End: June 22, 2017 09:00 PM

Location: UCL Roberts Foyer and Roberts G06

At this event, we plan to explore UCL interdisciplinary research, knowledge exchange and teaching activities that address humanitarian issues, and to emerge with a plan for new and expanded activities in this area. The particular humanitarian issues that we will explore are migration, refugee well-being, health, and education. We aim to identify how UCL can address the humanitarian challenges of today and tomorrow, and for the UCL community to work together towards this end.
