SOAS Summer School courses explore key international issues

4 March 2013

Migration, violent conflict, African politics, intercultural human rights are just some of the burning issues up for intense scrutiny through the three-week courses, which will be held at SOAS’ vibrant central London campus, 1st-19th July 2013.

The Summer School is a portal through which students can tap into SOAS’ renowned expertise on the history, anthropology, politics, law and culture of Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

The courses are:

  • African and Asian cultures in the diaspora
  • Culture and identity in modern South Asia
  • Development and conflict
  • International relations
  • Israeli history and the Israel-Palestine conflict
  • Law, multiculturalism and intercultural human rights
  • The state and politics in Africa.

SOAS Summer School students are also offered a social programme, starting with a welcome party and a river cruise on the Thames. They also receive discount codes for day trips and overnight tours with SOAS’ partner International Friends.

The new programme runs in addition to established courses such as those of the Language Training Centre and of the International Foundation Courses and English Language Studies (IFCELS).  SOAS also stages its annual World Music Summer School (now in its 11th year) and a wide range of African and Asian language courses.
