Professional Certificate Course in International Refugee Care

 

Course Code: PCC – IRC 702

 

Overview

 

Today’s world has more international refugees seeking relief and asylum than at any time since the end of WWII. Eighty-six percent of refugees are hosted in developing countries, severely straining existing social infrastructures. This course will introduce the principles of international refugee care, including the four recognized phases: pre-emergency/mitigation phase, emergency phase, post-emergency/maintenance phase, and the resolution/repatriation phase. Throughout these phases, refugee care leaders must attend to complex issues over security, dependency, mental health, location of settlements, and host-refugee relationships.

 

This is a comprehensive course built around the required textbook “The New Odyssey: The Story of the Twenty-First Century Refugee Crisis Hardcover,” by Patrick Kingsley (Liveright Publishing Corp, 2017). Academic credit earned is 2 credit hours. Sample the INMED learning experience with this 15-minute Free Demo Online Course.
