The 2020 Annual Report of the Department of International Refugee Law and Migration Law is now available!

In February, the International Refugee and Migration Law Department issued the 2020 Annual Report.

“[…] Driven by our commitment to advance the protection of refugees, internally displaced and stateless persons, migrants and host communities worldwide, the Institute didn’t stop in front of the pandemic. In record time we reconceived our training programme to meet our institutional goals, donor requirements and expectations of the hundreds of candidates who had applied to our Sanremo courses.
While the first lockdowns were imposed around the globe, the our team managed to develop and customise different features needed for online training, such as an Online Learning Platform and an Online Resource Library. […]”.
