Program Description:

The state of the world's refugees has become an issue of global importance. Forced migration is affecting vast numbers of people who find themselves victims of exclusion — and who are often denied a place of asylum.

This certificate program investigates the causes of forced migration, the ethical and legal issues involved, the impact on individuals and refugee communities and the implications for the wider society. This certificate investigates the conceptual issues (definitions, refugee rights, ethical norms) surrounding refugees and their status.
