There are two assessment tasks on the unit. A case study weighted at 75% and an oral presentation weighted at 25%.
Assessment 1 involves students choosing one case study of one country of origin to focus on
(a) the human rights situation in that country,
(b) consequences of the country of origin’s civil, political and socio-economic context in relation to forced migration
(c) details of policy and legislative responses to forced migration in countries of asylum and/or resettlement, including details of the nature and extent of asylum applications where applicable A range of academic, ‘grey’, governmental and civil society literature will be utilised in this task (1,500 words) which will be assessed by the unit lead.
Assessment 2 involves students giving a 10-15 minute individual presentation to peers and assessed by the unit lead on:
- One form of contemporary migration from the country of origin to country of asylum or sanctuary, or
- One country-based example that demonstrates multiple forms of contemporary forced migration This will be presented in a style relevant either to:
(a) specialist audiences (such as social workers, NGO workers or other practitioners working directly with forced migrants on a regular basis), or
b) non-specialist audiences (such as education, health, police and other professionals not working directly with forced migrants on a regular basis)
