How has the MA programme supported your work with international agencies?
My studies have been of great support, guiding my daily work at UNHCR with refugees. I have been working actively with the Kosovo authorities in capacity-building and supporting the establishment of a functional asylum system in Kosovo.
I have contributed proactively to the promotion of the refugee law and protection principles in Kosovo, thereby building the capabilities of Kosovo authorities and civil society in line with international standards.
The knowledge and skills that I have built up through study on the MA programme have been extremely useful in this endeavour.
Has it helped you reach your goals and ambitions?
The MA in Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies was an essential step in developing my career, knowledge and skills within this exciting and challenging field.
My dream has been accomplished – to continue working with UNHCR in one of the many operations that respond to emergency refugee situations, such as Uganda, which currently hosts over one million refugees.
I have accomplished my dream, and I strongly encourage others to do the same by studying refugee affairs.
