Since its first Refugee Law course 40 years ago, the Institute has trained thousands of government officials, staff of international organizations and members of the civil society, including academics on International Refugee Law, Statelessness, Internal Displacement and Migration Law. In 2020, to address the impact of COVID-19, the Department redesigned its courses and transferred its interactive teaching methodology and academic rigor into an innovative online format.
The online courses are hosted on the Institute’s Online Learning Platform, customized according to the needs of our participants, to ensure a quality training experience.
Given the increasing demand for our courses, in 2021, the Department will deliver 21 Online Courses in English, French, Spanish and Arabic (the 2021 Calendar of Online Courses is available here). These courses will be held at different time zones, to respond to the capacity building needs of participants from different geographical areas (information on time zones is available on each course page). The Online Courses are structured in four content-related weekly modules, composed by 2 to 3 live sessions (90 – 120 mins) per week and self-paced sessions.
The Department is pleased to announce that registrations are open for the first courses of the year:
- 6th Online Course on International Refugee Law (English) (25 Jan – 19 Feb)
