Applications are open for the following course offered by the Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford:

International Summer School in Forced Migration
5-17 July 2020
Oxford Department of International Development, Wadham College, and Harris Manchester College, Oxford

Bursary applications deadline: 21 February

The Summer School offers an intensive, interdisciplinary and participative approach to the study of forced migration. It enables people working with refugees and other forced migrants to reflect critically on the forces and institutions that dominate the world of the displaced. The course combines the very best of Oxford University’s academic excellence with a stimulating and participatory method of critical learning and reflection.

Participants:
The Summer School is principally designed for policymakers and practitioners working on refugee protection and related issues, normally with several (usually at least five) years of work experience. Participants typically include staff of the main refugee, migration and humanitarian international organisations; staff from refugee, human rights and humanitarian NGOs, and government officials working on refugee protection and related issues. We are particularly keen to include those from a refugee background who work for refugee advocacy and community groups.

Participants also typically include academics and postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers working directly on refugee and forced migration issues; practicing lawyers and advocates working in refugee and human rights law pertaining to forced migrants; journalists, commentators and activists working on refugee protection and the human rights of forced migrants.
