The Migration Management Diploma Programme (MMDP) is designed for government officials with experience in the field of migration and asylum. It is also open to other practitioners and students interested in the management of migration and asylum policies.
Running for three months, the course uses a range of teaching and evaluation methods including lectures and interactive sessions with participants. Special attention is paid to hands-on practical exercises, notably via the Problem Based Learning (PBL)
The MMDP aims to develop not only theoretical knowledge but also practical skills such as articulation and presenting; how to write briefs, policy notes and memoranda; how to formulate evidence-based policy; and how to work in a group and deal with conflicting interests.
Also on the agenda are seminars devoted to health, education and institutions, as well as scenario building sessions focusing on country case studies. In the scenario building sessions, participants create migration scenarios for their own countries, which have proven to be of great help when forming policy.
Overall the course will equip participants with a range of new skills and insights, as well as practical and interactive experiences of how to apply the latest knowledge in the field of migration management.
