19. Bernhard Streitwieser: Refugees – much work remains
Play • 25 min

The displacement of people as a consequence of war and persecution has sadly become a regular fixture in the daily news, making us accustomed to such humanitarian crises and perhaps less alert to the urgency of immediate response.

For international higher education professionals, taking action means facilitating refugees’ access to higher education. Despite the tremendous efforts made in the past decade, the numbers show that only a small percentage of refugees find their way into higher education. To discuss what is being done to remedy this, and why this work is crucial for the success and wealth of our own societies, we are joined by Dr Bernhard Streitwieser of George Washington University, a keen observer on refugees’ inclusion in higher education in an international perspective.
