Forced Migration and Gospel Hope

Around the world, we are seeing a record number of people on the move, mostly due to extreme poverty, political insecurity, with no hope for local solutions.  This is significantly affecting regional and global peace and stability, and is increasing platforms for terrorism, sexual and gender-based violence, and human rights abuses. How are the people of God called to respond to these realities? Through a survey of recent situations of forced migration (e.g., Syria, Somalia, Ethiopia, and eastern Congo), refugee stories, and an examination of the role of UN agencies and international NGOs, we will explore the causes, consequences, and responses to forced migration, including refugee movement.  Themes of justice, human rights abuses, forgiveness, and resilience will be explored.

Note: This class has a maximum enrollment of 40 students.
