INU for Refugees
INU Statement on Refugees and Displaced Persons
Considering that displacement has been a global problem throughout human history—and in regard to the recent dislocation of millions of people in the Middle East and North Africa by violence, war, persecution, and political turmoil—the INU commits itself to focusing its global and local engagement, scholarship, and teaching activities on initiatives that address both the short-term and long-term consequences of displacement and migration on individuals, systems, and the environment.
