Applications Open: Moving the Migration Policy Agenda Forward Programme

Scholarship applications are being accepted until 29 June for the 2024 MMPAF programme.

UNU-MERIT is accepting scholarship applications until 29 June 2024 for the Moving the Migration Policy Agenda Forward (MMPAF) programme. MMPAF is an online, capacity-building programme designed for government officials working in migration and/or asylum-related roles. It is also open to other practitioners and students interested in managing migration and asylum policies.

MMPAF is a series of tutor-led, online courses, which use various teaching and evaluation methods including lectures and interactive sessions with participants. Special attention is paid to hands-on practical exercises, notably the problem-based learning method.

The 2024 MMPAF programme will offer the following online courses:

  • Diaspora Engagement
  • Migration and Development
  • Irregular Migration
  • Migration Policy Coherence

Each course runs for one week on a full-time basis. Each of the courses is deliberately broken down into smaller learning blocks, making the learning process both structured and digestible. To ensure the programme’s quality, participants must commit to 40 hours per week, which includes contact hours and self-preparation with particular attention paid to interactive exercises and practical workshops.
