A distinguishing feature of the programme is its emphasis upon the lived experience of refugees and of refugee communities. By drawing upon staff and students’ personal contacts with such communities it aims to develop a fuller appreciation of refugee experiences, achievements and needs.
The programme will interest those who wish to undertake further research in the fields of migration and diasporic studies; ethnicity; social, psycho-social and cultural theory; legal studies; and social policy. It will also interest those professionally concerned with human rights; legal representation of refugees; counselling; education; social and community issues; and refugee welfare. It will assist those who wish to enter employment in these fields.
