The United Nations University and the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance are now accepting applications for the Migration Management Diploma Programme (MMDP). This three-month course, which starts on 1 April 2014, is designed for practitioners and civil servants working in the field of migration and/or asylum.
The MMDP aims to develop not only theoretical knowledge but also practical skills, such as articulation and presentation; how to write briefs, policy notes and memoranda; how to formulate evidence-based policy; and how to work in a group and deal with conflicting interests. Also on the agenda are seminars devoted to health, education and institutions, as well as scenario-building sessions focusing on country case studies. Deadline for registration is 17 January 2014.
