We are joining Refugee Festival Scotland to celebrate Refugee Week 2021 with the release of this special podcast interview on 17 June. Debora Kayembe discusses her work as a human rights lawyer, translator and activist, and her experiences arriving in the UK as a refugee.

In 2016, Ms Kayembe became the first African woman to join the Royal Society of Edinburgh, and in February 2021, she became the third woman, the first black woman and the first African immigrant to be named rector of the University of Edinburgh.
