Cardiff University supports the DEC agencies’ humanitarian mandate and also the recent statement made by Universities UK that: “The UK’s universities are resolutely committed to the right to education, enshrined in the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Higher education, in particular, is a global activity and we value our academic links with universities all over the world. The international nature of higher education means it is a force for understanding, tolerance and respect between peoples.”
