This course explores the complex issues surrounding refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs), including their legal status, rights, and challenges in seeking protection and durable solutions. Participants will examine the various causes and consequences of displacement, including conflict, persecution, and environmental disasters, and will analyze the different responses of governments, international organizations, and civil society to address these challenges. The course will also examine the impact of displacement on host communities, social cohesion, and conflict dynamics, and explore the potential of refugees and IDPs as agents of change and contributors to development. Through a combination of case studies, interactive discussions, and simulations, participants will develop practical skills for designing and implementing effective interventions to support the protection, assistance, and empowerment of refugees and IDPs. By the end of the course, participants will have a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities of displacement, and the skills and knowledge to support refugees and IDPs in rebuilding their lives and contributing to their communities.
