DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES

In the current refugee challenge in Europe, the social dimension of Higher Education (HE) is concerned with providing opportunities for refugees to participate in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). inHERE strength knowledge sharing, peer-support and academic partnership to facilitate integration and access of refugees in European Universities.

Collect and analyse good practice examples of HE approaches and initiatives in wide range of urgent situations, focusing on refugees and displaced students, facilitating the identification of successful patterns of integration which have the potential to be easily scaled up;
Sensitise HE governance, facilitating communication and institutional support within and outside the university;
Provide relevant orientation and training to the university staff, to empower universities so that they are able to take an active stand and further replicate successful approaches and practices; Mainstream results, achievements and recommendations to HE institutions, HE networks and HE policy makers on the strategies that can be put in place to integrate refugees in higher education, therefore increasing the social dimension of the EHEA.
