What we do

The RELIEF Centre aims to speed up transitions to sustainable, prosperous societies in the context of mass displacement, to improve the quality of people's lives.

To do this, we ask:

What does inclusive growth and sustainable prosperity look like in the context of large-scale movement of people?

How can we improve the quality of life for all in urban environments in Lebanon?

How do we drive innovation and measure value creation in the context of Lebanon?

How can the research and knowledge transfer capacities of Universities be reconfigured to develop innovative responses to these challenges?

The RELIEF Centre programme consists of four research themes based on the research questions:

Research Theme 1: The Vital City

Research Theme 2: Creating Value

Research Theme 3: Future Education

Research Theme 4: Prosperity Gains and Inclusive Growth
