About the Refugee Scholarships
The objective of the project is to offer a group of student-refugees to take part in the summer school and gain knowledge in EU immigration and asylum law and to complete their education, which may have been interrupted by their forced departure from their home country. A number of refugees working in NGOs have already benefited from it since the launch of this initiative in 2016. The initiative RefYOUgees organised with the support of the Université libre de Bruxelles is based on crowdfunding.
Due to a crowdfunding campaign, we hope to be able to fund like last year the full participation of around ten participants who hold refugee or subsidiary protection status in Europe. The funds cover registration fees and transportation costs, accommodation and living expenses for the entire duration of the Summer School. In order to support this year’s campaign, we created #refYOUgees a social media platform to share faces and stories of persons who believe that a different model of integration is possible. Join us on Instagram and Twitter by following the hashtag #refYOUgees!
Have a look at our ‘Refugee Voices’ booklets wherein the refugee students of the past Summer School editions present themselves:
Summer School on EU Immigration & Asylum Law and Policy
The Summer School has been designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the immigration and asylum policy of the EU from a legal perspective. The classes combine theoretical and practical elements while also leaving space for question time and class discussion. They tackle the most recent legislative, jurisprudential and political developments at EU level.
