Oxford University’s Refugee Study Centre (RSC) is organising the 27th edition of the International Summer School in Forced Migration.
This Summer School offers an intensive, interdisciplinary and participative approach to the study of forced migration.
It aims to enable people working with refugees and other forced migrants to reflect critically on the forces and institutions that dominate the world of the displaced, opening up debate about the purposes and scope of international protection.
