The Peter McMullin Centre's inaugural Statelessness Intensive Course took place at the Melbourne Law School from 4-8 February 2019. We were thrilled to have a cohort of 31 participants from 12 different countries, representing various types of organisations, from universities to government departments, to NGOs, legal corporations and human rights organisations.
"Taught by leading experts, the Statelessness Intensive Course offers a unique opportunity to situate current debates on citizenship, identity and inclusion on a solid foundation of international human rights law and social science. The interdisciplinary nature of the course and diversity of participants provides for rich and engaging discussions over the five days." - Dr Helen Brunt, International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
"The course offers a fantastic blend of theory and practice. An array of knowledgeable experts combined passion for the subject with clarity and commitment to effective delivery. Participants are drawn from academia, government, affected communities, international and national agencies and professionals, making it an infinitely enriching networking experience." - Jelvas Musau, Senior Regional Protection Officer (Statelessness), UNHCR Regional Office for South East Asia
