It is my pleasure to introduce the University of the Witwatersrand's
Forced Migration Studies Programme (FMSP). Located at a continental
crossroads of trade, travel, and intellectual exchange, we are a leading
institution for migration research in Africa and one of the few offering
graduate degree courses in forced migration studies. With a dynamic
staff and students from across the continent and elsewhere, the FMSP is
a critical node in a network of professionals and scholars. I hope you
will share this information with others who might be interested in
becoming a student or researcher in our programme.
Our teaching programmes are designed for students and practitioners
seeking greater insight into the experience of displaced persons,
international humanitarianism, and communities being transformed by
human mobility. For those new to the field, they provide an introduction
to key issues and themes. For those with practical experience, they
offer an opportunity for critical reflection. Seminars taught by
visiting scholars, workshops, and outreach activities add further depth
to students' experience at the FMSP. Moreover, all students enrolling at
the Masters level participate in one of the FMSP's ongoing research
initiatives where they receive specialised attention and mentorship.
Applications are now being accepted for registration in February 2011.
To be eligible for financial assistance, applications must be submitted
by 31 August 2010.
