We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Statelessness Summer Course, organised jointly by the Statelessness Programme, Open Society Justice Initiative and UNHCR. The deadline for applications is 1 April 2013 - full details of the course and selection procedure can be found on the course website.
The past few years have seen a growing acknowledgement of the true magnitude and impact of statelessness. However, much work remains to be done in terms of developing a full understanding of the phenomenon and building the required capacity to address it. Against this background, the Statelessness Summer Course offers a unique opportunity to learn about and reflect on the challenge that statelessness presents in the international legal system. Lasting one week, the Summer Course aims to enable people working in this and related fields - such as refugees, citizenship, human rights and anti-discrimination - to acquire new skills to better understand this problem.
Taught by experts from the Statelessness Programme at Tilburg Law School, Open Society Justice Initiative and UNHCR, the Summer Course offers a stimulating curriculum which combines academic excellence with practical experience:
"Nowhere else would I have been able to share with such a diverse and knowledgeable group of people so many experiences and information regarding statelessness. The Statelessness Summer Course is great for understanding and addressing such an important issue."
