Forced Migration Case Studies

Forced Migration Case Studies Partner(s): Neil Boothby
School of Public Health

Access: Columbia only
Released: October 2007


The Forced Migration website contains case studies in humanitarian crises that focus on issues of protection and the moral quandaries of humanitarian action. Included in each case are authentic media resources that are strategically attached to parts of the narratives. The website also features a forum that provides students with a space for raising questions, completing assignments, and analyzing and critiquing any of the media resources or cases as artifacts. In spring 2009, content revision began in preparation for a new 14-week course, Protection of Children in Disaster and War, to begin in fall 2009.
