An Erasmus+ KA2 project (December 2022-May 2025) on higher education resilience in refugee crises: forging social inclusion through capacity building, civic engagement and skills recognition.
This 3 year project (2022-2025), aims to enhance higher education institutions’ inclusivity and resilience in the face of ongoing refugee crises. Moreover, AGILE seeks to fill in the gap in comparative studies and data that trace the pathway of graduate refugees at institutional, national and European level.The project brings together long-established as well as newly and and cross-national initiatives to tackle refugee crises in the higher education sector and its connection to society.
Resilience building of higher education systems under the scope of integrating refugees in European societies will be achieved through social participation and recognition of skills in refugees’ learning pathways. The AGILE project aspires to foster academia-society cooperation in order to develop resilience and sustainability mechanisms that are deemed indispensable in contemporary multicultural and diverse European societies.
The AGILE project will deliver:
- A publication tracing sociolinguistic and academic integration of graduate students with a refugee background in Europe
- A report on 3-level intervention results
- A report on higher education- associations’ cooperation
- An open access analysis “Promoting and sustaining the transition from refugee settlements to higher education”
- A publication on the “Involvement of citizens in academia through digital immersion approaches”
- A report: Ukrainian HEIs’ response to the humanitarian and societal crisis
- Guidelines and recommendations for universities on Emergency Management at HEIs
