Refocus: An Online Summer Forced Migration in Africa Workshop Series – April 2024

April 3, 2024 — April 24, 2024

Cost:Free

The Refocus: An Online Summer Forced Migration in Africa Workshop Series facilitates developing knowledge and critical thinking on forced migration and protection issues in Africa; and facilitates the training of early career and emerging scholars. It is being run and hosted by the Refugee Law Initiative, University of London, the Centre for Migration Studies, University of Ghana; the African Centre for Migration & Society, University of the Witwatersand; and the African Academy of Migration Research (AAMR).

The theme for this year’s series is Forced Migration and Regionalism in Africa today.

Participation

The Series takes a hybrid approach to participation. If you are interested in completing the Refocus Series as a summer school, it will be necessary to attend all 4 sessions and then produce an original piece of work on a topic related to this year’s theme. This will qualify you for a summer school certificate of completion.

Alternatively, participants are welcome to simply attend all four sessions or attend specific ones.

Both forms of participation are free and open to all
