The Course, organized in cooperation with the Institut de Droit de la Paix et du Développement of the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, is specifically designed for Post-Graduate students with a background in International Law. The objective of the workshop is to build the knowledge of participants on Refugee and Human Rights Law and on the issues faced by people in need of protection, including stateless persons, internally displaced people (IDPs), and migrants. A very good knowledge of English is a requisite for attendance. The International Refugee Law Courses for Post-Graduate Students aims at:
  • Analyzing the law, principles and policies relating to international protection;
  • Defining key concepts and employ the correct terminology with regards to refugees, migrants, IDPs and stateless persons;
  • Raising awareness on the human rights issues faced by refugees and the need for durable solutions;
  • Developing a pragmatic and solution-oriented attitude towards the situation faced by forcibly displaced and stateless persons;
  • Creating true advocates for refugees among future professionals.

The four-day Course will strike a balance between theory and practice and will be delivered through a participatory and creative teaching methodology. Students will be engaged in case studies, role plays, group discussions and simulations and will interact with practitioners and experts in the field of international protection.
