In light of the developing refugee situation, we are facing new challenges that cannot be ignored by society and specifically by higher education institutions. A number of activities are taking place now, connected to the response from higher education institutions. The Coimbra Group members take part in those initiatives to help refugees get back into further education after being displaced from their home country.
In view of this, the Coimbra Group wishes to highlight the initiatives and activities undertaken by our academic community to welcome all international students, including refugees, and to remind our governments of the intellectual and universal values in Europe, as our universities have done for centuries.
