The inHERE Good Practice Catalogue (GPC) is the product of an in-depth analysis of almost 300 initiatives from 32 countries of higher education institutions and organisations committed to welcoming refugees1 that have participated in EUA’s Refugees Welcome Map Campaign up until early 2017.
As is the case for the Map itself, the aim of the GPC is to serve the academic communities in Europe and beyond as a source of information and inspiration, and to enable exchange and collaboration between interested stakeholders. While it focuses on refugee students and researchers, it should also foster a broader discussion and include higher education institutions’ strategies , their third mission and their approaches to diversity management.
Cases for the GPC have been selected on the basis of a set of criteria, focusing on actual or potential high impact with regard to the integration of refugees into study and social life. While institutions were asked to indicate the number of (future) students and researchers reached, more important than quantity was the potential for transferability and upscaling in other higher education systems and university contexts.
The initiatives analysed in the GPC are examples, but by no means an inventory of the measures undertaken to include refugees in European higher education. This is even more so as the Refugees Welcome Map is not the result of a systematic mapping, but represents voluntary submissions of institutions and organisations via a short questionnaire.
The cases have been arranged under 11 topical categories. Each case has several category tags, the first one being that under which it has been selected. The descriptions of the initiatives are based on the text submitted to the Refugees Welcome Map, plus a set of follow-up questions to the participants.
