Why join this programme?

What are the forces behind this number? How do international organizations and sovereign state respond to the challenge of millions of displaced persons? And what about the refugees themselves? Are they interested to permanently settle in Europe or are they better off in countries ‘in the region’? How can they, given their diverse backgrounds, be integrated best into European societies? This interdisciplinary three-week 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.
