Introduction

Migration, be it voluntary or forced (escaping wars, conflicts, natural disasters and other emergencies), can have complicated consequences at the social and psychological levels of individuals concerned. After leaving the stability of home, country and culture, migrants are exiled into countries where they often feel alienated, isolated and struggle from discrimination and violations of their basic human rights. As a practitioner, humanitarian worker, policy maker or researcher, it is vital to understand the psychosocial consequences of migration.

The course is based on a participatory, active learning approach, with an emphasis on peer-to-peer learning.
