The deadline for bursary applications to the Summer School is now extended to February 10th!
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.
The 2017 International Summer School in Forced Migration will 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.
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 course, which is residential, is held in Oxford. Teaching is conducted in English.
