Friedrich Naumann Foundation’s (FNF) Human Rights Academy (HRA) has been contributing the human rights education in Turkey since 2020. The Academy has been carrying out various courses ranging from basic level to advanced level courses with thematic courses. Overwhelming demand for a course about refugees and international protection resulted our first “International Protection and Refugees Course” in 2021 with the cooperation of United Nations High Commissioner of Refugee’s (UNHCR) Istanbul Office. The course was carried out online and received hundreds of applications. Numerous experts from the field and academia attended.
This year, Human Rights Academy will carry out its first face-to-face and international course. The Second International Protection and Refugees International Summer School will be carried out between July 24 – 28, 2022. The summer school will be carried out with the cooperation of FNF’s Human Rights Academy and UNHCR’s Izmir Office and Mülkiye Migration Research Center (MÜGAM).
The course will be offline; participants will be accommodated in the hotel where the program will take place.
