APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN!

INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL IN FORCED MIGRATION

2-14 July 2017
Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford

Applications are invited for the 2017 International Summer School in Forced Migration, to be held at Wadham College and Queen Elizabeth House, Oxford. 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 other forced migrants to reflect critically on the forces and institutions that dominate the world of the displaced. Now in its 28th 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.

See the video here: https://www.rsc.ox.ac.uk/study/international-summer-school/overview

The 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 include 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.

The teaching:
Lecturers, tutors and seminar leaders are drawn both from the Refugee Studies Centre and from outside institutions. They include research staff, academics and professionals from a number of disciplines and practices, including anthropology, politics, law, psychology, international relations, and social development.

The course, which is residential, is held in Oxford. Teaching is conducted in English.

Sponsorship:
Asfari Foundation bursaries are available for Summer School candidates who work on refugee-related issues from Palestine, Lebanon and Syria (or Palestinians and Syrians resident in the Arab world). Candidates wishing to be considered for bursary support must apply directly via the International Summer School office and not contact the donors.

Refugee Studies Centre bursaries are available to exceptional candidates who are nationals of a developing country, are resident in a developing country, and whose work concerns refugees and/or forced migration. Developing countries are defined as those with low or medium levels of human development as classified by the UNDP  see http://hdr.undp.org/en/countries.  Those who have already submitted applications for the 2017 Summer School need not re-apply as eligible candidates will automatically be considered for these bursaries.

Should additional funding become available details will be provided on the Summer School website.
