The purpose of the Winter Field Study Course in the Middle East is to bring graduate students to examine strategic and practical approaches for navigating the challenges and dilemmas of some of the most complex political and humanitarian issues in the Middle East region. In 2016, it will focus on the humanitarian response to the current Mediterranean migration crisis, and will be engaging with practitioners working on this issue in Morocco. The course will explore current trends and challenges of migration in order to better understand the response (from local NGOs, humanitarian organizations, government, religious groups, private sector, etc) to the unprecedented influx of migrants to Europe by sea. The course is organized as a mean to furthering professional dialogue on complex issues and fostering exchanges between graduate students and practitioners in the region. Enrollment is limited and all candidates must be interviewed by the Instructor prior to applying to the course.
