    Hi everyone!
    I’m from Chile. I studied philosophy in Argentina and delved into the issue of migration, especially the case of refugees in the Mediterranean on their journey to reach European lands. I worked with migrants in Buenos Aires, Argentina and had an experience in a refugee shelter in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I am currently studying Psychology in Chile. I am interested in having more tools to accompany the pain of these people. Also, I am very interested in the issue of migration and human rights. I hope that this course will help all of us to have a broader vision of the issue to fight more strongly for the rights of people who migrate.

    Hug from south!

    Hey, y’all!

    My name is Sonia, a French citizen on my ID and the daughter of the Mediterranea, born from an Algerian/Amazigh dad and a French/Italian mother. As a graduate student in International Relations at Sciences Po Toulouse (France), I am currently pursuing another master’s degree based out of Beirut (Lebanon) in Human Rights and Democracy in the Arab World. Following a year-long exchange in Istanbul (Turkey), I have changed my areas of work interest from journalism to research. Since then, I have worked for multiple research centers based out of Istanbul, Paris, and D.C, volunteered for an NGO supporting Syrian children in Lebanon, and Co-chaired the branch of a student-led think tank on European and transatlantic affairs from Yale University.

    I am looking forward to pursuing a Ph.D. intersecting political science/sociology in refugee studies. Ahead of it, I would love to expand my understanding of human rights thanks to this course! Especially subjects dealing with immigration detention, refugees’ resettlements and returns or climate change and statelessness phenomenon.

    Hello everyone,

    I am a Peruvian lawyer specialized in human rights. I have nine years of experience in public policy advice and peacebuilding matters. I have worked in Peru and Colombia. My last work included liaising with Colombian authorities and former combatants (FARC) to foster the implementation of Peace Accords.

    While in the Peruvian Government, I supported the national reports’ coordination and facilitation under the UN Human Rights Treaties Bodies, including the one related to the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers.

    I am now interested in deepening my migration knowledge, so I am glad to be in this course. I have read some of the presentations, and it seems to be a pretty varied cohort, which I think makes it more interesting.
