Migration and Integration: Refugees, Rights & Realities

Admissions Deadline: 10 December 2023

Millions of people around the world are forcibly displaced. But what are the forces and stories behind these numbers? What does the ‘label’ refugee actually mean? And what agency do refugees and other forcibly displaces people have in making decisions about their future? Explore these topics – and many more – in our two-week online winter course hosted by the University of Amsterdam.

In this course, we will discuss these global governance issues from diverse perspectives such as sociology, geopolitics, international refugee law, and anthropology. We will focus on global politics, get an introduction to international refugee law and learn more about state's responses to refugee influxes. We will look specifically into a few displacement situations across the world and dive deeper into the topic of integration of refugees and the gender angle in displacement.
