The UK has accepted a few thousands refugees from Afghanistan following the rise to power of the Taliban. The majority of these refugees have been brought to the UK out of fear for their lives in Afghanistan, largely due to their cooperation with British personnel. A smaller number were airlifted haphazardly.
These refugees now face numerous immediate challenges regarding housing, employment, integration and mental health. ICIC is organising a conference to bring together experts from a broad range of disciplines to discuss ways in which these urgent problems can be tackled with the collaboration of a common and multilateral initiative.
ICIC would like to invite you to join our diverse panel who will discuss how best to engage with the influx of refugees from Afghanistan and to support their integration in the UK. The conference will take place on Thursday 9 September between 12:00-14:00.
