new summer quarter course,  IPM 598: Special Topics course:  Resettlement and Camp Infrastructure.  It is a 1 credit course.  “We are facing the biggest refugee and displacement crisis of our time. Above all, this is not just a crisis of numbers; it is also a crisis of solidarity.” – Ban Ki Moon, United National Secretary General   
This course familiarizes students with the social, political and economic processes that produce vulnerability and induce migration. Given that the topic is vast, the course is intended to be a survey of the types of temporary settlements that are largely a response to climate change geohazards, violence, and pandemics. As numbers of refugees increase, this course begins to explore how planning must take place on a larger scale now to ensure humane basic infrastructure systems are provided.
