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.
Graduates of this Refugee Integration programme at Dublin City University can expect to find employment in a range of areas with:
NGOs, at home or abroad
reception and integration bodies (such as the Reception and Integration Agency) and Direct Provision Centres
Local councils designated as reception areas for refugees
Local and national bodies, workplaces (such as hospitals, schools, multicultural workplaces) advising on policy making, strategies and their implementation
International bodies such as the UNHCR, Red Cross, Médecins sans Frontières, and others concerned with guaranteeing the well-being and care of refugees and migrants
