Website accessibility

The Rethinking Refuge project is run by the Refugee Studies Centre at the University of Oxford. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. We know some parts of this website are currently not fully accessible. Work to amend these issues is ongoing. For example:

  • Not all of our images have alternative text, though most images on this site are decorative (non-essential to understanding content or purpose)
  • The colour contrast of some text is insufficient
  • The carousel on the home page has coding that will affect its accessibility
  • Some links are missing descriptive text.

If you need information on this website in a different format such as large print, easy read, or audio recording, please contact us:

We will consider your request and get back to you within 28 days.

We are working to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page, or think we are not meeting accessibility requirements, please contact us on
