Oxford Human Rights Festival logo
This award-winning documentary investigates how forced migrants from Syria were sheltered across Europe and the Middle East, ending up in mega-camps, city squats, occupied airports, illegal settlements, requisitioned buildings, at-pack structures, and enormous architect- designed reception centres. Containing perspectives from the humanitarians who created these shelters as well as the critics who campaigned against them, the documentary reveals the complex dilemmas involved in attempts to house refugees in emergency conditions. Based on innovative research at the University of Oxford’s Refugee Studies Centre, the film Shelter Without Shelter offers new insights into a universal human experience. We all need shelter, but what is it? The screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers.
