UCIS Summer School on refugee crisis in Europe

The UCIS Summer School for 2016 is now online and open for applications.

Are you interested in learning about the refugee/migrant crisis in Europe as well as international studies and what it can offer?

This one-week, comprehensive introduction course focuses on the major features of international studies, delving into both theory and practice, from a legal, governance and humanities-based perspective. Each class will be taught by an expert from one of the specialised Master’s programmes from the Utrecht Centre for International Studies (UCIS), including Conflict Studies and Human Rights, European Governance, European Law, International Relations in Historical Perspective and Public International Law. Using the theme of migration and refugee issues throughout the week, the experts will provide the knowledge and analytical tools to equip participants with the ability to engage with global challenges in innovative ways. Through lectures, interactive working groups, expert panels and an excursion, participants will gain an understanding of various elements – and their interplay – involved in international studies. The course is designed for bachelor and masters students with an interest in international studies and what can be offered in this field.
