About the Course

This MOOC provides insight into the refugee phenomenon as one of the most complex, compelling and (arguably) misunderstood features of the 21st century. Taking a global perspective, it will outline the fundamentals of who ‘refugees’ are, where they come from and where they go, as well as delving into the features of the global system for refugee protection and ‘solutions’ for those who have been forcibly displaced. It places the student at the centre of the learning experience through engagement with a range of robust and challenging activities, materials and online peer engagement....

I am professional working as a caseworker, even for me this was a great course to compile my knowledge and have a look at general issues related with refugees and migration. I updated what I knew up until now. The only thing is missing is global migration theories, I would like to see those. Enjoyed all videos, syllabus, forums and discussions. Thank you!

Although the reedings were very informative and insightful, I would have liked to have more recorded lessons from the professor with slides, or maybe even recorded interviews with professional who see the realities in the field. But over all, I learned a lot! I am looking forward to an opportunity to work with refugees. Thank you! Andrea

Thank you for this course. It was clear and gives a good overview of the evolution of the UN policies acoording to refugees and IDPs' rights. It allows us to think the future of the displacements that will take place in the next decades. Thank you again. If I could, I would enter the MA "Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies".

The overall reading material provided for the course was good. The major area of improvement could be the course managers explaining the nuances of such an important subject. I also felt that the grading could be done with more Q&As. And if possible, there could be more recommendations for books written on this subject. Thank you.

A very informative and eye opening course, as a Naval Officer working directly with a situation similar to a refugee crisis, It's enlightening to have been able to partake in such a course, It has allowed me to increase my domain awareness and sensitivity to serious issues affecting not just regional politics, but global politics.

Very good course! It helps to understand the complex problem of refugees, as well as the actions that are being carried out and what remains to be done.

The assignments helps to share opinions with other students. Highly recommended to anyone interested in social issues or international conflicts.

This is an excellent and resourceful course. It provides theories and practical notes with figures of refugees since their origin, current situation and project some lights to future considerations. I recommend it to everyone especially those humanitarians.

Very interesting course - perhaps more of a mix of videos and interviews, interactive activities and readings would increase the attractiveness of the course, as opposed to the set structure of intro video, list of readings and discussions.
