International Summer School in Forced Migration
Sunday, 01 July 2018 to Friday, 13 July 2018
Oxford Department of International Development, 3 Mansfield Road, Oxford / Wadham College, Parks Road, Oxford / Harris Manchester College, Mansfield Road, Oxford
Hosted by Refugee Studies Centre
The Summer School offers an intensive, interdisciplinary and global 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.
Now in its 29th year, the two-week intensive course combines the very best of Oxford University’s academic excellence with a stimulating and participatory method of critical learning and reflection.
This course is suitable 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 include scholars and 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.
