International Summer School: Refugee Law & Rights
August 14 - August 24
Join us for the 10th International Summer School in Refugee Law and Rights founded in 2012 by Dr Selma Porobić with late OBE Prof. Emerita Barbara Harrell-Bond from the University of Oxford. The school is modelled according to international summer schools initiated by late professor Harrell-Bond in the 1980s as pioneering refugee law training for humanitarians.
We bring together leading academics and practitioners focusing on both theoretical and practical aspects of legal refugee protection, to proactively contribute to its advancement through future careers in academia, UN, governmental and non-governmental organizations, media and other sectors of work. Our goal is to advance legal protection skills and to enhance collaboration in responding to the current challenges of international refugee protection in Europe and globally.
Due to the Russian Federation’s aggression on Ukraine and the ongoing war with massive-scale displacement of civilians, our school for the second year in a row will be co-organised and donated to V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University in Ukraine – Aurora Alliance Associated partner university. The school offers a 10-day hybrid training programme and is hosted by Law Faculty at the Palacky University Olomouc.
When: August, 14th – 24th, 2023
Registration deadline: June 15th
Credits: 3 ECTS
School fee: 500 EUR (*donation contribution)
Organiser: Aurora Alliance Office and Faculty of Law, Palacký University Olomouc with International Office, V.N. Karazin Kharkiv University.
