Course 1 Description: This course will examine migration, including forced migration, in Uganda and the broader East African region. Based on data provided by UNHCR, Uganda is hosting more than 150,000 refugees and asylum-seekers from Burundi, the DRC, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan and South Sudan. While an estimated 40,000 urban refugees live mostly in Kampala, the majority of the forced migrants are spread across eight settlements in the north and southwest of Uganda. After a general introduction to migration in the Great Lakes Region, the course will visit international organizations (including UNHCR and/or IOM) and local and international NGOs involved in supporting migrants in Kenya. As part of the course work and based on materials developed by the Sphere Project, the students will work in groups on case studies examining the management of refugees and migrants in Gulu, an area formerly controlled by the Lord's Resistance Army and center for resettlement and other post-conflict activities. The case study exercise will involve the collection of interview and other field data in cooperation with the University of Gulu. A trip to Murchison Falls National Park is planned on the way to/from Gulu.

Course 2 Description: This two-week course will apply case study methodology to the study of the approach that the country of Rwanda adopted to emerging from one of the fastest, most brutal genocides in the 20th Century. The course will use a combination of didactic and experiential learning approaches, to look at the mechanisms and strategies of transitional justice applied here. Students will chose a dimension of the case to explore in-depth and the course will culminate in the synthesis of the various dimensions of this case in the context of a conceptual framework for case study analysis. The course will examine the factors that led up to the genocide, the genocide itself, the legal response by the International Community, and the post genocide response and recovery by the nation of Rwanda.
