This MOOC is produced by the RELIEF Centre. The RELIEF Centre is a research collaboration focused on Lebanon. It addresses the multiple challenges faced by cities and communities experiencing large-scale displacement and inflow of migrants or refugees. These challenges include pressures on educational provision, social tensions between hosts and migrants, and strained public services and utilities such as energy, water, housing and transport.

This MOOC is part of a series produced by the Future Education research team, who are working on co-designing the appropriate education and learning opportunities for communities impacted by mass displacement.
