|Description:||International Summer School in Forced Migration|
|Location:||Oxford, United Kingdom|
|Subject:||At the beginning of the 21st century, nearly 60 years after this definition was enshrined in international law, there are many other forcibly displaced people around the world who do not easily fit within the formal category. They and their rights are in urgent need of protection. We live in a rapidly changing world in which human migration has a significant impact on the economic, political and social agendas of sovereign states, intergovernmental agencies and civil society groups. It is vital that forced migrants åÐ be they refugees, internally displaced people or those who have to move for other reasons such as global warming or development projects åÐ have their rights defined and their freedom preserved.
