The world is currently experiencing an unprecedented level of migration. According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs International Migration Report approximately 244 million people reside outside their country of origin.

The migration phenomenon and the many human rights issues that it raises will be addressed by the 5th Edition of the Summer School on Human Rights organized by UNICRI in cooperation with John Cabot University.

The Summer school will take place at John Cabot University in Rome from 11 to 15 July 2016. The training will offer professional, legal, social, scientific and academic perspectives and will couple theoretical lectures with roundtable discussions, dynamic case studies, and practical exercises.

The faculty of the Summer School is composed by leading scholars and academics from John Cabot and other universities, representatives of the United Nations system, international human rights bodies and the civil society. The course is designed for university graduates in Law, Political Science, International Relations, Economics, Social Science and other relevant disciplines. It is also addressed to young professionals working in governmental institutions, local authorities, international and non- governmental organizations seeking to deepen their understanding of current human rights issues.
