Canada is a global leader in refugee research, policy making, and in refugee resettlement. Ten to twelve thousand refugees are resettled annually in Canada – this is ten percent of all those who are resettled globally. Our goal at the Centre for Refugee Studies (CRS), one of the largest and most active refugee studies centres in the world, is to assist with building and updating the increasing and changing knowledge needs of refugee scholars and practitioners. In May 2012, CRS offered its internationally acclaimed seven-day Summer Course on Refugee and Forced Migration Issues for the 16th consecutive year. York University, home to the foremost concentration of refugee and migration scholars in North America, once again hosted the course.

Participants typically include government officials, non-government organization personnel, university faculty, and graduate students. If the applicant’s background is strictly academic, a first degree is required (undergraduate students may apply to the course if they are completing their degree prior to the course start date).
