Every year V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University welcomes students to study in Karazin Camp.


Usually, our schools are held in the picturesque peaceful Ukrainian city of Kharkiv. Due to the recent change of circumstances for our University, affected by Russian Federation’s aggression on Ukraine and the ongoing war-situation, our International summer schools on Mass Displacement and Cultural Heritage will be merged into one school with the relevant topic of War-displaced Persons Protection and Rights — Case Study Ukraine. It will be hosted in exile by Palacky University in Olomouc, Czech Republic in the form of a hybrid event. The school will offer a full 10-day programme in-person and through online, distance learning participation. 


The summer school is modelled according to International Summer Schools in Refugee Law and Rights, initiated by Dr. Selma Porobic and late professor Barbara Harrell-Bond, University of Oxford, as pioneering academic refugee law training for humanitarians. Its content this year will be fully adapted to focus on mass displacement and protection of civilians affected by the developing war situation in Ukraine. Besides the general International refugee law and European asylum law looking into the refugee protection and rights in the reception countries of Central-Eastern Europe, it will also focus on the protection and rights of internally displaced persons in Ukraine, international humanitarian law and documenting war-crimes as well as coordinated humanitarian aid to Ukraine. 


We invite you to register for participation in the International Summer School of War-displaced Persons Protection and Rights — Case Study Ukraine, which will take place on 15-25 August 2022.


Our Summer School is organized for international undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students whose fields of study are sociology, economics, international relations, law, psychology, cultural and social studies, history, Eastern European studies and humanities. With a wide range of academic modules to choose from, you may select the subjects best suited for you to gain new aspects of the international curriculum, deepen and share your knowledge, and befriend peers of different cultural backgrounds and life experiences.
