Module description

This module will provide students with a thorough understanding of the relevant contexts of Refugee Care (as a theoretical and applied field). Refugee Care has not been a traditional subject at post-graduate academic level and this module aims to contribute modestly to this development by creating a coherent framework within which Refugee Care can be located meaningfully. This module complements the 'Therapeutic Care for Refugees' module in so far as it will assist students develop a thorough understanding of the (inter-)relationship between Therapeutic Care with other academic disciplines.

Learning Outcomes
By the end of the module students should be able to:

* Demonstrate an understanding of the multidisciplinary nature of Refugee Care.
* Demonstrate an ability to approach Refugee Care from wider academic perspectives which include specific insights that enrich the comprehension of key terms and processes in this field (e.g. dislocation, justice, culture, rights, and care).
* Demonstrate an understanding of relevant parameters of Refugee Care (e.g. sociological, philosophical, linguistic, arts).
