This Refugee Integration programme at Dublin City University develops an in-depth, multi-faceted knowledge of issues raised by the arrival of asylum seekers and refugees in different jurisdictions.


Many European societies have well-established sets of policies and legislation in place regarding the integration of migrants. However, they often lack a comprehensive and cohesive approach to meeting the needs of those arriving in crisis situations from a multiplicity of cultural and linguistic environments as well as the needs of the society in which they are settling. The School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies offers a Masters of Arts in Refugee Integration.
