A broad variety of teachings are given within the Masters Programmes of the Graduate Institute and through summer courses. The PSGM faculty members are also regularly invited to give courses and provide training outside the Graduate Institute.
Summer courses: Global migration, Cooperation and development
Each year, the Programme for the Study of Global Migration organizes in cooperation with the Graduate Institute’s International Programmes a Summer Course on “Global Migration, Cooperation and Development”.
The course includes lectures given by internationally-renowned professors as well as dynamic activities such as in-depth and small-group study of selected issues addressed during the lectures; visits to international organisations in Geneva (for example: IOM, UNHCR) and practical exercises, including negotiation simulations and role play.
This summer course provides an excellent opportunity for students and practitioners to further specialize and ameliorate their academic and practical competence of the field.
This year, the summer course will take place in June 2013. More info
Applied Research Seminars
Since 2011, the Programme for the Study of Global Migration has been involved in the Graduate Institute’s Applied Research Seminar (ARS) which aims at providing students in the Master in Development Studies (MDEV) with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working with external partners on “real world” research projects. Within that framework, the PSGM facilitates students’ contacts with international organizations and NGOs and provides research advice.
The following projects have been supported by the PSGM:
- 2013: A team of five students from the Graduate Institute – with the support of the Programme for the Study of Global Migration – will collaborate with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Cairo over a period of five months in order to evaluate their Regional Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration Program for Stranded Migrants in Egypt and Libya (RAVEL).
