Lectures at the University of Lund on Migration Programming

Robert is pleased to have been back at the University of Lund in Sweden, where he lectured several times in September to graduate students in the faculty of social sciences. The lectures were titled “Migration Programming: Lessons from the Field”, and focused upon how effective refugee and migrant-related programming is put in place from the point of view of an international organisation, with particular attention given to understanding beneficiary needs as a basis for then designing and implementing appropriate programming.
