The University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa – Refocus: An Online Forced Migration in Africa Workshop Series

Posted on April 15, 2024

Every Wednesday in April.

The African Centre for Migration & Society (ACMS) at Wits and its African Academy of Migration Research (AAMR), the Refugee Law Initiative, University of London, and the Centre for Migration Studies, University of Ghana are running a series of online workshops every Wednesday in April 2024 that explore Forced Migration and Regionalism in Africa Today. The workshop series focuses on developing knowledge and critical thinking on forced migration and protection issues in Africa and facilitates the training of early career and emerging scholars. The series takes a hybrid approach to participation. If you are interested in completing the Refocus Series as a summer school, it will be necessary to attend all four sessions and then to produce an original piece of work on a topic related to this year’s theme. This will qualify you for a summer school certificate of completion. Alternatively, participants are welcome to simply attend all four sessions or attend specific ones. Both forms of participation are free and open to all by registering here.
