Professional Certificate Course in International Refugee Care
International refugee care is a pressing global issue. Today’s world has more refugees seeking 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 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.
