International Summer School – Oxford University

Applications is now open for the International Summer School in Forced Migration at Oxford University. The Summer School fosters dialogue between academics, practitioners and policymakers working to improve the situation of refugees and forced migrants. It offers an intensive, interdisciplinary and participative approach to the study of forced migration. It aims to enable people working with refugees and other forced migrants to reflect critically on the forces and institutions that dominate the world of the displaced.

The Summer School is intended for:

  • Mid-career and senior policymakers and practitioners involved with humanitarian assistance and policy making for forced migrants. Participants typically include host government officials, intergovernmental and non-governmental agency personnel engaged in planning, administering and co-ordinating assistance.
  • Researchers specialising in the study of forced migration.

This year, there will be scholarships available for candidates who work on refugee-related issues from Palestine, Lebanon and Syria (or Palestinians and Syrians resident in the Arab world).
