For more than 70 years, Ockenden International has helped refugees and displaced people across the globe.

The International Prize was launched in 2012 as was a three-year refugee studies fellowship at Oxford University.

This important prize for a project that aids refugees or displaced people – as well as the Oxford University Fellowship – honours Ockenden International’s founder Joyce Pearce and the principles on which Ockenden was established.

GBP875,000 has been given in prizes since the inaugural GBP60,000 prize was awarded in February 2013.
