Liverpool ARK: The health and wellbeing of refugees
Join us at the first event organised by Liverpool ARK – Liverpool Asylum and Refugee Knowledge, the University of Liverpool interdisciplinary network on refugee studies.
This event will address the health and well-being of refugees, and aims to share current research in the field, link researchers and local experts, and develop an agenda to meet local challenges.
A team from the University of Liverpool’s Institute of Psychology Health and Society will present findings from several refugee health projects they have been involved with.
