    Addressing Refugee Crises in the Middle East and North Africa: Policy and Practice(July9 - 13, 2017)

    The Middle East and North Africa region is one which has been facing inter and intra-state conflict for decades, with forced displacement being a major consequence. How have the current refugee crises in the region been a determining factor in global politics? How can responses to refugee crises such as those in Syria, Yemen, Libya, or Iraq continue to be depoliticized, and the main principles of international refugee and humanitarian law be upheld? What are the prospects for solutions to protracted refugee crises in the region? And how can multi-stakeholder processes have a greater impact, in light of the September 2016 United Nations General Assembly Summit? This short course aims to analyze the contextual construction of refugee situations and the policy frameworks in place to address them in the largest displacement crises since World War II.

She is currently the Senior Policy Advisor for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) MENA Bureau.

    Advanced Refugee Law: Developing Strategies of Legal Engagement At The Frontier Of The International Refugee Regime(July 16 20, 2017)

    Is someone a refugee if he or she has fled to a state that hasn't signed the Refugee Convention or recognized refugees in its domestic law? If this person isn't a refugee, does he or she have any rights? What protection is owed to him or her by the new state of residence? How can the law, lawyers and legal institutions respond to the vulnerability, needs and capacities of such individuals?

    From Lebanon through to Malaysia, a majority of the world's refugees live in a broad, contiguous swath of states that have not signed up to the core international agreements concerning how refugees should be protected. Furthermore, many states that are party to the Refugee Convention have not incorporated its obligations into domestic law. In such locations, refugees are often treated as "outside of the law" and subject to discrimination, abuse and other serious human rights violations. The answers to the opening questions for these people are too often in the negative and the result can be catastrophic for refugees. Refugees in these locations suffer a range of mistreatment as result of being seen as outside of the law, including irregular status, discriminatory treatment from landlords and employers, sexual harassment and assault with impunity (including at the hands of state officials), arbitrary arrest and indefinite detention (often in conditions so severe as to put their life at risk), and corporal punishments such as canning. This course seeks to systematically explore some recent successes by local providers of legal aid to refugees at the frontier of the international refugee regime and to discuss how these successes can form the basis for a new approach to refugee protection.

    At its outset, the course will explore the limitationsof the Refugee Convention and the international refugee regime that is built upon it. It will propose and develop an alternative approach based upon a broadly and diversely sourced “law of asylum”. The doctrinal sources relevant to this law will be elaborated, including international and regional human rights sources as well as domestic constitutional, statutory and customary sources, as will the practical challenges of such lawyering.Turning its critique of the international refugee regime upon itself, the course will also explore how more expansive understandings of what constitutes “law” may also reveal avenues and fora for advocacy. The course will also problematize the voice and agency of refugees in legal engagement and the meaning of and challenges facing those seeking to pursue legal empowerment. The course will draw heavily upon case studies sourced from jurisdictions traditionally seen as at the frontier of the international refugee regime, including mainly Egypt, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Hong Kong.

    The course will be delivered through a range of means including lectures, small group work, and interactive exercises. Invited speakers drawn from the local legal and refugee communities will also apply the discussions of the course to the context of refugee protection in Egypt. The course assumes a familiarity with the Refugee Convention and the international refugee regime and is aimed at post-graduate students, practitioners, policy makers and lawyers with an interest in the role of the law in refugee protection.

    About the instructor: Martin Jones is a senior lecturer in international human rights law at the Centre for Applied Human Rights at the University of York. He has practiced as a refugee lawyer in Canada and has published widely on various topics in refugee law. Martin is the co-founder of the Egyptian Foundation for Refugee Rights, the leading provider of refugee legal aid in Egypt, and has consulted widely to legal aid organizations in the Middle East and Asia. He is the principal investigator of a multi-year collaborative international research project investigating the role of the law in refugee protection in the Global South.

    Palestinian Refugees(July 23 - 27, 2017)

    Palestinian Refugees are the indigenous inhabitants of Palestine, the majority of whom were dispossessed and expelled when the Israeli colonial state was created in 1948. Consequently the solution of the Palestinian refugee problem is the root for a just solution to the Palestinian question that has been challenged the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, International Law and refugee policy for decades.

    This inter-disciplinary course will be an opportunity for students to engage directly with the major practical and theoretical issues connected with the background of the Palestinian refugee crisis, with special attention to the socio- political historical context and legal status of Palestinian refugees in the region (Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, the West Bank, Gaza and Israel).

    Through a mix of lectures, working group exercises and interactive sessions, students examine critically the historical, political, legal and ideological forces that have shaped Palestinian refugees turbulent circumstances and participate actively in the contemporary debates in international law and analyze the specific context of Palestinian refugees in the Middle East.

    The key themes, which have taken emergent focus in the debate on the Palestinian refugee crisis, are statelessness, right of return, repatriation, self-determination, restitution compensation and protection. These themes are critically examined along with current discussions about the respective roles of UNRWA and UNHCR in the Palestinian refugee case.

    We hope to attract a diverse group of students who have both personal and professional interest in refugee policy and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The course is intended to be a stimulating experience for people who are familiar with issues in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but would like a broader critical or theoretical perspective, as well as for people who have experience with refugee, humanitarian, or international issues but who would like an intensive introduction to Palestinian refugees. Taking advantage of the short course format, the course will include a number of simulations and small group exercises.

    Each of the five days of the course will be organized around a theme related to Palestinian refugees

    Course Overview

    The experience, knowledge and enthusiasm of a presenter are usually the deciding factors of many selection panels and audiences in judging how good a presentation is. For major projects, initiatives, and ideas, most competing teams will do their technical homework and develop similar competing approaches and solutions to the project’s needs/issues and challenges. To many selection panels, the technical approaches of competing teams are too similar, making it difficult for them to differentiate the teams technically and thus they resort to other factors; the clients ask firms to present their proposal in-front of a selection committee. Therefore your presentation, slides, audiovisuals, style, tone etc. are critical factors to seal the deal.

    In other words, in addition to developing a sound technical approach as the core of any presentation, it is equally or even more important to focus on the soft attributes of the presenting team; their teamwork and chemistry, passion and enthusiasm, and their likeability.

    Learning Outcomes Learn how to organize your presentation in a story-telling fashion in order to engage the listener.

    Tailor the focus of the message(s) according to the needs of your audience.
    Characteristics of effective message crafting and delivery
    Better commanding the room and counterpart nervousness and rushed attitudes.
    Increased capacity to answer questions clearly, confidently, & accurately

    Learn how personal presentation skills and visual aids can effectively add value and improve the effectiveness of your message.

    Cairo with its’ currently assumed 18 million inhabitants is and has always been in the past one of Africa´s most vibrant metropolises. According to the urban historian Nezar AlSayyad the city for millennia already is a cosmopolitan global city. However, in the last centuries, from the Ottoman Empire until present Cairo has witnessed large migratory movements, both internally and transnational, which have shaped its urban life, development and dynamics in many ways.

    This short course will focus on the importance of Cairo as a junction for transnational networks, migration and cultural and religious diversity, as well as an important home for tremendous refugee movements from the neighboring Arabian and Sub-Saharan countries focusing on current and previous migrant movements and its legacy. In this way the course intends to challenge myths on Cairo´s urban realities and questions western-universalistic concepts of Cosmopolitanism and Modernity. The short course will consist of a mixture of seminars and lectures as well as guided tours by local experts and practitioners (academics, NGOs, migrant-(self)organizations).

    In a world where nearly 20 people are forcibly displaced every minute as a result of conflict or persecution,” UNHCR (2017), the crisis became epidemic in catastrophic proportions. It is widely recognized that the face of this crisis and the refugee landscape has changed greatly over the last decade. Refugees are less often concentrated in the traditional camps, and more often are living in urban areas, especially large cities. This change in landscape adds further psychosocial issues to consider, particularly, integration into communities and access to resources. Most of the guidelines and recommendations for psychosocial interventions are directed at those refugees living in camps, and it is recognized that this needs urgent addressing.

    This course aims to bring those working with refugees and forced migrants together to develop a greater understanding of the needs, experiences, psychosocial and mental health interventions available to this ever growing and under serviced population, with a particular focus on displaced individuals living in urban areas. Whilst many refugees are able to great resilience and cope effectively, others in more vulnerable situations are less able to, and are at increased risk of mental health and social problems. Those with existing mental health issues are at great risk of the worsening and prolonging of such issues, given the circumstances in which they find themselves and a lack of access to appropriate resources.

    This course will also familiarize participants with the Inter Agency Standing Committee Guidelines on mental health and psychosocial support in emergency settings. The levels of interventions will be explored focusing on psychological first aid, basic counseling skills and the identification and sharing of referrals and cases.

    About the Instructor: Kate Ellis is an Assistant Professor of Psychology and the Graduate Director of the Psychology Department at the American University in Cairo. She is a qualified clinical psychologist who completed her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Canterbury Christ Church University, in England.

    Across Europe, the figure of the migrant has taken center stage in anxious debates about the present and future of the nation-state. Against this backdrop, a range of laws and policies regulating migrants’ relation to the nation-state – or ‘migrant citizenship’ – have been adopted and implemented. This course investigates these laws and policies as well as migrant experiences of, and responses to them. As a starting point, the course introduces different perspectives on Europe, such as a post-colonial and a post-industrial perspective, as well as different understandings of citizenship and belonging. From there, the course traces the unfolding of neoliberal welfare reforms and the culturalization of citizenship of the past few decades. The course then delves into the actual laws and policies regulating migrant citizenship, emphasizing in particular how migrants’ negotiation of these laws and policies are shaped by intersections of gender, class, and race. It does so through a series of in-depth, ethnographic studies that show the contours of migrant citizenship in everyday life.

    About the instructor:** Wiebe Ruijtenberg is a PhD researcher at the department of anthropology and development studies at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. His research explores the Dutch welfare state through the experiences of Egyptian migrant families in Amsterdam. Previously, he graduated from the Research Master Social Sciences at the University of Amsterdam with a dissertation on social life in gated communities in Cairo, Egypt. He has also taught as a visiting fellow at the Cairo Initiative for Liberal Arts and Sciences.

    A commitment to performance measurement has become essential throughout the nonprofit sector, foundations, government and other nongovernmental organizations in response to demands for increased accountability, pressures for improved quality and customer service, and mandates to “do more with less,”. There is also an emerging drive to strengthen the capacity for results oriented management among professional public and nonprofit administrators.

    Demonstrating results achieved is required to be accountable to project’s beneficiaries in one hand and to funding partners on the other. Applying proper project design practices and setting-out a monitoring and evaluation framework are not important only to demonstrate accountability but also to report progress, manage project’s activities, apply for additional funding and to communicate development change more effectively. Furthermore, in order to stand-out of the competition, organizations need not only to build results-oriented culture but to strive towards greater outcome-level changes targeting improved welfare for their project’s beneficiaries.

    The training will cover the basics of performance measurement and looks at frameworks to explain how a program is understood to contribute to its intended or observed outcomes, definition of performance indicators and data sources. The course will provide ways into the analysis and reporting of performance information and its incorporation in a number of critical management processes such as project management, stakeholders engagement, strategic planning, proposal writing, and effective communication among others. The course will end up with an open discussion of the challenges and common problems in M&E systems
