At the City University Graduate Center of New York, for example, Dr. Francis M. Deng, Representative of the UN Secretary-General on Internally Displaced Persons, began teaching a course in 2000 on the subject of internal displacement for which he developed a course syllabus and in connection with which the Brookings-CUNY Project on Internal Displacement published a Selected Bibliography on the Global Crisis of Internal Displacement. Given the widespread interest in the bibliography and the course, the Brookings-CUNY Project has decided to compile course syllabi from around the world that address the topic of internal displacement. We plan to publish this collection as a resource for academics and researchers who are planning courses and training materials on the subject of internal displacement in an effort both to assist them and stimulate others to create academic programs. We have been informed by university faculty in different parts of the world that they would welcome this support. We therefore would very much appreciate receiving from you any syllabus that you have developed relevant to internal displacement. The syllabi to be published in this collection should reflect a definite focus on the subject of internal displacement and/or the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement, even if the course itself is more broadly formulated. Our publication will fully acknowledge the title of the course, the institution at which it is taught and the contact information of the professor (if so agreed) who developed it. If you would like your course to be included in this collection please email us an electronic version of the syllabus at firstname.lastname@example.org We would also be most grateful to receive the names of professors and academic institutions you believe we should contact that we might not know about. We would appreciate hearing from you as soon as possible so that we can plan for publication prior to the fall semester. We thank you very much for your involvement. Sincerely, Gimena Sanchez-Garzoli Research Analyst The Brookings-CUNY Project on Internal Displacement Telephone: (202) 797-6145; Fax (202) 797-6003 Email: email@example.com www.brook.edu/dybdocroot/fp/projects/idp/idp.htm ---------- LOOKING FOR A LIST OF CONTACTS OF ORGANISATIONS (NGOs) IN UK Friends, I am a development sector professional with more than 12 years of experience in human rights interventions, health interventions.
