Refugee Night

Refugee Night is an annual event co-sponsored by the University of Ottawa, CARL uOttawa, the Human Rights Research and Education Centre and the Refugee Hub. This evening of theatre and education brings together students, faculty and other community members to explore domestic and global issues related to forced migration policy.

Refugee Night also provides an opportunity to publicly present the Roberto Miranda Award. This award acknowledges the outstanding contributions to human rights and social justice made by community member who came to Canada as a refugee. The award is also meant to recognize the positive qualities that emerge from refugee experiences, including courage, resilience, a willingness to put others first, and a respect for humanity.

The evening also showcases original dramatic pieces and performed by our very own law students and members of the legal community in Ottawa. Combined with inspiring guest speakers, Refugee Night is always an informative, thought-provoking, and moving experience.
