The Human Rights Law Centre Summer School is a unique, expert-led programme and provides participants with the intellectual skills and instruments to understand the complex nexus between development aid, migration policy and food security.

Topics addressed will include:

  • The use of development aid as a tool for migration control
  • The outsourcing of migration control to developing countries
  • The focus on security in the context of migration control
  • The parallels between food (in)security and food aid and migration control
  • The nexus between humanitarian and development interventions

Academics and practitioners will share knowledge and insights on the role played by state and non-state actors in the development context and the workings of international and regional law and policy at the interface between hunger and migration.

The Summer School is strongly participatory and includes Q&A and group exercises. The working language for the Summer School is English. All participants will receive an extensive electronic file of resource materials.

This programme runs from Monday 24 – Friday 28 June and will be based in the Law and Social Sciences Building, University Park.
