Student international week
Health and Social Care perspectives of refuge and migration in Europe
The purpose of the international week is to explore issues of migration and refuge that are relevant to existing social and political situations within Europe, and to do this within a frame that seeks to make more porous and critically challenge the traditional divides between self and others.
The programme aims to equip students with knowledge that will assist them, as trainee health and social care professionals, to work compassionately with refugees and those seeking asylum.
It is premised on the principle of ethical relationship: to encourage students to consider how to ‘experience with’, rather than ‘do to’, and to critically reflect on their own values as individuals and future professionals, working within a local, national and international socio-political context.
Areas of attention that will be focused upon within the event are:
– policies and politics;
– physical, psychological and social wellbeing;
– identity and belonging;
– working as health and social care professionals within this context.
A particular focus is on understanding common human needs experienced by self and others, and to consider how the socio-political context can affect ability to meet needs in particular:
– Basic physiological needs such as food, drink, shelter, clothing, warmth sleep;
– Safety needs such as protection from the elements, security, sense of stability, freedom from fear;
– Love and belonging needs, needs for relations with others, friendship, intimacy, trust, acceptance, giving and receiving of affection and love,
being part of a group;
– Esteem needs, including self-esteem linked to feelings of dignity, achievement, mastery, and the need to be esteemed or valued by others,
have respect from others, be seen as someone with status, prestige.
As part of the event participants will undertake insight visits to organisations within Derby that work with and/or on behalf of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.
We would need to know which Universities are interested in sending their own students before anyone books on via the link detailed below, together with an institutional academic contact.
The event will this year be free of charge, however, participants will need to arrange and cover costs associated with travel, accommodation, and meals. Links to accommodation options are included on the event website.
We would be grateful if you would invite students that are either in the second year of undergraduate study or above this level.
All students will need to enrol (as this is a standard University requirement) nearer to the event – the booking site will only reserve their place in the first instance.
It would be useful to know in advance as to whether any institutions anticipate as to whether your students will submit the summative assessment after the event (in order to be awarded with the 5 ECTS credits directly from the University of Derby).
