About this course
This course was last updated in March 2022.
This short course takes a step back from the day-to-day reality of asylum in the UK in order to place it in a wider global and historical perspective.
It explores why international refugee law is necessary and how it has developed over time, and the interplay with refugee definitions found in regional legal instruments. The course then looks at where refugees are from, why they move and where they live around the world, including a closer look at refugees in the European Union and the UK.
The course is only available to paying members of Free Movement. If you are not already a member, you can join here and access not just this course but all of our courses.
