Forced Migration 7
Migration, whether forced displacement or economic migration of the poorest, is often a major factor in either escaping from poverty, persecution and danger and/or moving into yet more dangerous situations. In search of livelihoods and safety, people often become victims of smugglers or traffickers. Students are given an enhanced awareness and understanding of the complex interaction between migration and humanitarian interventions from the point of view of the migrant, the authorities of the host be it the national or recipient region or country, and the humanitarian worker. This course is held in cooperation with the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
- Equip aid workers, government officials, military personnel and other professionals with the tools necessary to work effectively in situations involving migrants and refugees.
- Gain knowledge of the theory and principles of forced migration through a combination of case studies and group exercises.
This course is a week-long elective course for the IDOHA and IDMHA modules of the MIHA.
