International Summer School in Forced Migration 1-19 July 2013 Refugee Studies Centre, Oxford University
Application is now open!
The summer school is aimed at mid-career or senior policy makers and practitioners involved with humanitarian assistance and policy making for forced migrants. Participants typically include host government officials, intergovernmental and non-governmental agency personnel engaged in planning, administering and co-ordinating assistance. We also accept applications from Researchers specialising in the study of forced migration.
The Refugee Studies Centre’s International Summer School fosters dialogue between participants working to improve the situation of refugees and other forced migrants. It provides the time and space for them to reflect on their experiences and to think critically about some of the aims and assumptions underlying their work.
Over three weeks, around 70–80 participants from all over the world study together, take part in group activities and produce independent presentations. The course looks at the complex phenomenon of forced migration from a number of different angles. Beginning with reflection on the diverse ways of conceptualising forced migration, the course considers the political, legal and well being issues associated with contemporary displacement. Individual course modules also tackle a range of other topics, including globalisation and forced migration, negotiating strategies in humanitarian situations and human trafficking and smuggling.
The fee for 2013 is £3,220 (Pay by 31 March to qualify for a reduced fee of £3,050). This covers 19 nights’ bed-and-breakfast accommodation and all weekday lunches; all tuition; all course materials, including reading materials; and a range of social activities.
Please note that the deadline for applications is 1 May 2013
