UNU-MERIT is now accepting applications for its Migration Management Diploma Programme, which will begin in April 2013. This three-month course — designed for government officials, practitioners and students with experience in the management of migration and asylum policies — will comprise three main, four-week courses: Migration Management and Protection, Migration and Development, and Migration Policy.
The aim is to help participants to build both theoretical knowledge and practical skills, such as how to write briefs, policy notes and memoranda, how to formulate evidence-based policy, and how to deal with conflicting interests.
Sponsored by the Dutch Foreign Ministry, scholarships will be offered to government officials from 40 developing countries with at least three years of experience in the field of migration and/or asylum. Up to 10 scholarships per year will be awarded.
The application deadline is 15 February 2013. The programme will run in Maastricht from 1 April to 28 June 2013. The tuition fee is €3000.
