Living Refugee Archive

The Living Refugee Archive (LRA) is home to a growing collection of resources relating to refugees and forced migration.  All our resources are free of charge and some resources maybe re-used.

LRA is designed to be user friendly to facilitate its use by as many different groups including students, academics, forced migrants asylum seekers and refugees, oral historians, practitioners, the media, members of the public and anyone with an interest in these areas.

This website is run by a small team at the Refugee Council Archive in the University of East London.  It was established in part through UEL civic engagement funding.
