FXB Center, University of Athens Launch Joint Program on Migration

The FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University, in collaboration with the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece, and with the support of the Harvard Center for Hellenic Studies in Greece and the United States, is launching a new program on migration and refugee studies in Greece. This partnership was announced today during a virtual event.

This partnership begins with a new three-week intensive, interdisciplinary, summer course. The course, with lectures, seminars, interactive class sessions and fieldwork, offers students the opportunity to engage both conceptually and practically with key issues related to contemporary forced migration. The course will be held in Athens, Nafplio and Lesvos from July 11, 2022 through July 31, 2022.

Harvard graduate students across all schools and degree programs may apply, but admission is limited to 15 individuals. Applications are due February 15, 2022. Harvard graduate students with demonstrated financial need can apply for Financial Aid offered by the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University. The amount of Financial Aid will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
