Woodbrooke, Quaker Asylum and Refugee Network and Quaker Council for European Affairs working in partnership.

What are the links between migration and peace? This course, led by the Quaker Asylum Refugee Network and Saskia Basa, Migration and Peace Coordinator at the Quaker Council of European Affairs, will seek to answer this question.

Some of the questions we will engage in together in this course are: What are the pressures that people in movement currently face across Europe? How do different countries in Europe handle asylum seekers and migrants? What can we do and who can we engage with?

This course will use a mix of presentation and discussion, reading and reflection to support participants to develop more understanding and have the opportunity to learn from each other and the tutors.

The themes of the four weeks are:

  • Week 1: Responses to migration in Europe: Current State of Play
  • Week 2: Understanding Migration and Peace
  • Week 3: Peaceful Approaches to Policy-making
  • Week 4: Community Engagement and Solidarity – Taking Action for Peaceful Migration

There will be some material to look at before the first session. We will email you around one week prior to the course with information about accessing the course, including this material, on our online learning platform (Moodle).
