SUMMER SCHOOL: Migration Summer School - Theories, Methods and Policies

IX Migration Summer School:
“Theories, Methods and Policies”

17th June – 28th June 2013

Deadline for applications: 15th April 2013

International migration has become an all-important issue for the world as a whole, and for the European Union and its neighbourhood in particular. People crossing international borders bring with them a baggage of different cultural, social and political experiences, which then they negotiate with the host society. This dynamic, two-way process of integration has, however, impacts on societies of origin as well. This year we ask a crucial question: How is integration negotiated between the sending and receiving countries?

Participants of the IX Migration Summer School on “Theories, Methods and Policies” will explore the answers to this question. Through this lens they will analyse the interactions of the regions of origin and the regions of destination; migration policies and the regulation of migration; and processes of social cohesion.

Two days of the Summer School will coincide with the annual Migration Policy Centre Conference. Therefore the participants will attend the debates and discussions held at this occasion, as well as a roundtable especially organised for them with EU Commissionner for Home Affairs Cecilia Malmström.

The School will accept a maximum of 30 participants, each of whom grants the following requirements:
  • hold a relevant Masters degree;
  • have a strong professional and/or research background in international migration;
  • have an excellent working knowledge (speaking and writing) of English;
  • be able to attend the entire teaching aspect of the programme.
