The EUI welcomes applications to the 16th Migration Summer School from an enriching mix of postgraduate students, civil servants, officials at international organizations, representatives from NGOs and other civil society organizations, policy analysts, and teachers from around the world. Scholarships are available for students from Developing Countries.
Application Deadline: 15th March 2020
Eligible Countries: Developing Countries
To Be Taken At (Country): EUI, Florence, Italy
About the Award: The programme includes a series of inter-active workshops that will allow participants to discuss concrete examples of migration-related policy questions, and to reflect on the various different methods for analysing migration and mobility.
Teaching staff includes members of the Migration Policy Centre as well as other academics and policy professionals dealing with migration and related public policy issues. In addition to lectures, inter-active workshops and debates, the programme includes time for independent study and research.
Participants will be encouraged to translate perceived societal problems into social scientific research questions. The combined insights from political, economic, sociological, legal and anthropological approaches to the study of migration will enable participants to return home with a deeper understanding of one of the most complex and multifaceted phenomena affecting governments and society across the globe.
The Summer School is also a unique opportunity to network with other participants (a selected group of researchers and practitioners from throughout the world), have access to some outstanding scholars in the field, and take advantage of the research facilities of the European University Institute (including the EUI Library).
