The U21 Community of Practice webinar on the Role of Social Work in Forced Migration was co-organised by The University of Edinburgh, University College Dublin, University of Johannesburg and the University of Lund, with Dr. George Palattiyil (UoE) leading.
The webinar brings together latest research findings on the lives of refugees from five countries and provides an opportunity to discuss and reflect on social work’s commitment to social justice and a shared humanity with those who are forcibly displaced.
From 15-18 November 2021, U21 hosted a week long opportunity for colleagues across U21 to come together around the theme 'Looking Ahead'. The week long programme of events, all related to Global Mobility, consisted of nine sessions hosted by sixteen mobility group members.

How do we support the monitoring of progress against the strategic goals of our universities, and the metrics that influence the attainment of these goals?
