Right now men, women, and children are fleeing Syria, Somalia, Afghanistan, and other places of war or conflict. Because several Scandinavian countries are known for their humanitarian views, and fair and equal societies, many of these people hope to reach the Nordic borders. This course addresses the need for international protection, the asylum process, and the protection of rejected asylum seekers against torture or other violations of international human rights regulations.
