Improving the humanitarian protection of vulnerable, displaced people in contexts of conflict in central Maghreb



The Maghreb Action on Displacement and Rights (MADAR مدار Arabic for ‘path’) Network Plus aims to improve the humanitarian protection of vulnerable, displaced people in contexts of conflict in the central Maghreb region of Algeria, Morocco, and Tunisia. The network is funded by the UKRI AHRC Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Collective Program (Network Plus).


Art and engagement

MADAR's aim is to facilitate research collaborations and fund research projects that draw on the regional expertise of UK and Maghreb researchers; support for artistic and creative initiatives will be at the heart of our approach to responding to social and political issues related to migratory flows and displaced persons.
