Summer Course on Refugee and Forced Migration Issues Centre for Refugee 
Studies, York University, Toronto, ON, Canada June 6  14, 2009

The Summer Course on Refugee and Forced Migration Issues is an 
internationally acclaimed eight-day course for academic and field-based 
practitioners working in the area of forced migration. It serves as a 
hub for researchers, students, service providers and policy makers to 
share information and ideas.

The Summer Course provides an interdisciplinary, interactive and 
experiential approach to the study of forced migration. Through 
attending lectures and related small group sessions, course participants 
develop a deepened understanding of the political, economic, social and 
cultural contexts of forced migration, and the major state and non-state 
institutions involved in refugee protection and advocacy.

The program uniquely includes simulated refugee hearings held at the 
Immigration and Refugee Board, Toronto. Participants will have also an 
opportunity during the course for structured networking and idea 
collaboration through participation in a theme-based small group 
session. All participants who complete the full course receive a York 
University Centre for Refugee Studies Summer Course Certificate.

	Root causes of forced migration
