Short Course

Refugees and Migrants, and a Rights-based Approach to Development

8–17 January 2007

Forced Migration and Refugee Studies (FMRS) at the American University in
Cairo (AUC)



This ten day advanced course is designed for practitioners from government,
inter-governmental non-governmental agencies, donors and community
representatives in the Middle East and Africa with institutional
responsibilities in the field of refugees and migration. The participants
will explore the practical implications and challenges of applying the
much-touted human rights approach to policy making in real situations. The
course will be both theoretical and practical, drawing on the wealth of
lessons arising from trial and error, to determine the best-possible
development outcomes for hosts, refugees, and migrants. Participants will
take away new skills and techniques to apply in their own context.

Course Sponsors: Migration, Globalisation and Poverty, Sussex Centre for
Migration Research (SCMR), University of Sussex, and funded by DFiD. The
Development Research Centre (DRC) on Migration, Globalisation and Poverty
was established in June 2003, in recognition of the complex relationship
between migration, forced migration, and poverty. The DRC examines migration
flows in which poor people themselves are most represented and how migration
impacts variously on their livelihoods, rights and levels of social
protection. Migration DRC is a partnership between institutions in South
Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Central and Eastern Europe. We undertake
the research, capacity building and dialogue necessary for evidence-based
and pro-poor migration policies.
