Dear List Members,

See below for information on two courses which still have spaces available for participants:

1.  Children in the Asylum System

We still have places available for our upcoming courses especially for those working with children in the asylum system - book now!  Courses are delivered by experienced practitioners ensuring they are relevant, practical and up-to-date.

- Age Assessment Awareness and working with age-disputed young people -  21st February, London & 15th March, Leeds - places available.  Ensuring the wellbeing of unaccompanied refugee children and young people is at the heart of this course, which aims to give delegates the confidence and information they need to challenge assessments, and the tools to ensure that the correct processes are in place in your organisation.

This course will examine the emotional impact of the experiences that refugee children and young people face as they flee from their home countries and settle in the UK.

2.  International Refugee Law and Contemporary Challenges
 
We still have a few places available in the e-learning course International Refugee Law and Contemporary Challenges, offered by HREA and the University for Peace Human Rights Centre from 22 February-27 March 2012.
 
This short certificate course introduces participants to the international system for refugee protection, from the historical, legal, theoretical and practical perspectives. Issues concerning international protection of refugees have undergone a sea change from the time when the 1951 Refugee Convention came into force. The contemporary world order poses serious challenges to refugee protection, beginning with identifying refugees within mixed migratory flows, inadequate national policies by states to protect refugees, their incompatibilities with international refugee law, the role of international organisations like the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), issues of xenophobia and security in host countries amongst various other issues. This course is designed to provide a comprehensive picture to participants of how and why refugee protection is indispensable from the historical and human rights perspective, what are their needs and available legal protections, which are the relevant actors involved in refugee protection and what are the challenges facing today's refugees and host countries. The course also analyses the regional systems of refugee protection with the help of selected case studies. The course is based on a dynamic pedagogy including reading materials, video clips, case studies, and interactive webinars with the instructor as well as practitioners from NGOs and officials of UNHCR.

This e-learning course involves approximately 40 hours of reading, interaction with students and instructor on discussion boards, quizzes and webinars with invited guests. The course is based on a participatory, active learning approach, with an emphasis on critical reflection and peer-to-peer learning. The maximum number of course participants is 25. Students who successfully complete the course will receive a Certificate of Participation. It is also possible to be an auditor of the course.
