MOOC 'Refugees in the 21st Century'

The RLI has recently launched an exciting new online short course ‘Refugees in the 21st Century’. This Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is freely accessible to all. Taking a global perspective, the course provides insight into the refugee phenomenon as one of the most complex, compelling and (arguably) misunderstood features of the 21st century. No prior knowledge or experience in the refugee field is required to take this course and as such, the course is for everyone.


The Refugee Law Initiative previously delivered its Short Courses on 'The International Protection of Refugees and Displaced Persons' and 'European Asylum Law and Policy' on an annual basis. They were designed to provide academically challenging training in a research-active environment to refugee and human rights practitioners in London; post-graduate education and research training in the field of refugee law, to the highest academic standards; and, facilitate collaboration among refugee law scholars and practitioners. These courses are not currently runnning.
