The Living Refugee Archive (LRA) is home to a growing collection of resources relating to refugees and forced migration.  The Living Refugee Archive was established as a portal to help facilitate access to digital archive materials and existing archival collections including the Refugee Council Archive at the University of East London.

The LRA will take an active role in documenting the heritage and narratives of the refugee and migrant experience. Archives have the power to present a narrative determined by the documentary evidence that has survived. Archive have the power to preserve community memory and influence individual identity. What is the role of archives in enabling refugees to have a voice in the social, legal and political empowerment of communities?
