Enhancing global learning on migration and refugee law

LSBU’s Law Division is partnering with five other universities from across the globe to enhance specialised e-learning in refugee and migration law
21 December 2017

The INSPIRED project – Innovative Solutions for Practicality and Impact in Refugee and Migration Oriented Education – will design online study modules covering among others, asylum, organised crime and terrorism in Europe. The sub-modules will centre around fundamental rights, justice and security and refugee law.

The project emerged in response to the need for specialists in refugee and migration law. LSBU will be contributing specifically to the migration and organised crime aspects of the course.

Head of LSBU’s Law Division Andy Unger said:

“These modules cover highly topical issues in which transnational co-operation is vital. We are thrilled that we have been invited to participate in this major project.”

LSBU academics Cherry James, John Koo and Emmanouela Mylonaki have been leading on the project. LSBU has worked with several of the participating universities on a number of joint field trips abroad for its existing EU Criminal and Migration Law module and hosted Erasmus students.

LSBU will host a conference in June 2019, alongside participating universities, to enable students to test out the new learning materials.

The project is co-funded by the EU Erasmus+ Programme as a KA2 Strategic Partnership in Higher Education.

The following universities are as follows: Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek (Croatia), Mykolas Romeris University (Vilnius, Lithuania), Inholland University of Applied Sciences (Den Haag, Netherlands), University of Pecs (Hungary), and London South Bank University (United Kingdom), along with the University of Ulster (Northern Ireland) being an associated partner.
