This innovative and interdisciplinary course is concerned with one of the key global issues of the 21st Century. Conflict, genocide, development, human rights abuses are some of the factors that precipitate refugee crises. The MA provides students with a theoretical understanding of the background and responses to forced migrants and draws on sociological, legal, political, international relations, policy, economic and anthropological analyses.
This course is particularly relevant to those with a personal experience of forced migration as well as those who either work or would like a career working for statutory, NGO or community based organisations that work with refugees and other migrants.
Students on this MA have an opportunity to work on a range of substantive topics ranging from global responses to refugees, human smuggling, refugees and human rights, gender, displacement, humanitarian responses, refugee diasporas and community formation in different regional contexts.
