ROLES

Millions of people worldwide have been forcibly displaced across countries and continents for a wide range of reasons, including armed conflict and natural disasters. Some have become refugees or Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), while others live as irregular migrants. Some have been trafficked and live as victims of modern slavery. All find their futures dependent on political decisions and local perceptions driven by the media. This course will equip students to understand the complexity of forced migration and its relevant legal and protection framework, including International Refugee Law and the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement. It will also address recent developments and the shift in emphasis from solving the problem of forced migration to the provision of durable solutions. This course is recommended for students who are interested in forced migration or who may wish to work in the areas of protection and response to affected populations. It is also recommended for humanitarian practitioners who are already working in this field and want to improve their knowledge and understanding of these complex issues. The course will be taught by Professor Anthony Land, Ph.D.

Professor Anthony Land has over 40 years of humanitarian experience working with the UN and NGOs. He served with UNHCR as Head of Office and Chief of Operations responding to major situations of displacements in Asia, Africa, and Europe for 21 years. This includes a senior role in UNHCR’s response to the war in Bosnia (Sarajevo), Kosovo, and Chechnya, and work in donor relations raising funds for many of the operations in which he served. Since 2006, he has developed and taught post graduate courses in both classroom settings and by distance learning. He regularly lectures on courses run by Fordham and Bournemouth Universities, and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
