Centre for Interdisciplinary studies is proud to announce the open call for the International Summer School in Refugee Law and Rights 2017, offering comprehensive 10-days training and university certificates in refugee protection and rights, to be held from 13th-23rd of August in the Centre’s premises.
ABOUT THE SCHOOL
Based on previous success of CESI International Summer Schools in refugee protection (2012-2015), this year’s International Summer School in Refugee Law and Rights will once again offer both general training in refugee law and a specific case study analysis of the application of asylum rights in five countries of the region: Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia and Macedonia. The training offered in this school focuses on the procedures for assisting refugee asylum claims, including practices of taking testimonies, finding COI information and documenting families. Principal aim is to advance the skills for protecting asylum seekers and to help exchange and build expert and cooperation networks in responding to the current challenges of access to international refugee protection in the countries of the Western Balkans.
The school is open to students and professionals from all academic disciplines and backgrounds. Our participants typically include staff from main refugee and humanitarian international organisations, regional and local refugee, human rights and humanitarian NGOs, government officials working on refugee protection, scholars and researchers working directly on forced migration issues as well as practicing lawyers, advocates, journalists and activists working on refugee protection and the human rights of forced migrants.
We invite you to conduct the registration by sending your short letter of interest and CV to Dr. Selma Porobić, School Co-ordinator at email@example.com and CIS at firstname.lastname@example.org
REGISTRATION IS OPEN UNTIL THE 15th of July 2017
