The Summer School offers an intensive, interdisciplinary and participative approach to the study of forced migration. It aims to enable people working with refugees and forced migrants to examine critically the forces and institutions that dominate the world of the displaced.
 
The Summer School is principally designed for policymakers and practitioners working on refugee and related issues, normally with several years' work experience. Participants typically include staff of the main refugee, migration and humanitarian international organisations; staff from refugee, human rights and humanitarian NGOs; government officials working on refugee protection and related issues; scholars and researchers working directly on refugee and forced migration issues; practicing lawyers and advocates working on refugee and human rights law pertaining to forced migrants; journalists, commentators and activists working on refugee protection and the human rights of forced migrants.
