Note: for summer 2021 we are hosting a two-week online version of this programme.
Since the Second World War, more than 65 million people have been displaced from their homes. What are the forces behind this number? What are the dynamics of migration? How do NGOs and governments handle the topic?
This interdisciplinary summer course introduces students to key issues in the legal, (geo)political, sociological and anthropological analysis of forced migration. It enables students to understand the context in which forced migration takes place, the social change this triggers in hosting communities and the efforts needed to successfully integrate newcomers.
- Engage with and learn from expert academic staff and guest lecturers.
- Gain an understanding of the issues surrounding forced migration and integration from various perspectives.
- Visit relevant institutions in Amsterdam and The Hague.
- Prepare to connect with people from all over the world! We keep class sizes small to ensure personal interaction.
- Enjoy Amsterdam as your host city!
