    Robert Chambers played a significant role in the development of the Refugee Studies Centre. John Gerhardt at that time was the President of the American University in Cairo, but had formerly been the representative of the Ford Foundation in Cairo. Robert returned from India to the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex and soon visited the Refugee Studies Programme (RSP). In March 1984, the RSP hosted a conference entitled: ‘Assistance to refugees: Alternative viewpoints’. Robert made a significant contribution to the field of refugee studies and this was to suggest that a publication, Refugee Participation Network, be produced by the RSP in order to get refugee voices heard.
