2019 MIGSS: Moving Beyond Crisis? From exclusion to integration of migrants and refugees in Europe
The 3rd Migration Summer School (MIGSS) has been carefully designed and developed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of issues regarding the integration of immigrants and refugees in Europe.
The summer school gives participants a theoretical and practical understanding of contemporary migration in Europe, with particular focus on the current situation in Europe. This will be achieved through lectures and discussions led by internationally acknowledged professors and experts, as well as through a day of site-visits to facilities and organizations in Athens that support refugees, and immigrants. This program is organized by the European Public Law Organization (EPLO), and will operate out of the EPLO’s premises at Sounion, Greece. This School will take place from 22nd July to 27thJuly, 2019
This program will offer participants insights into migration in Europe, highlighting its growing relevance for the worldwide discussion on migration and refugee integration policies and combating social exclusion in Europe. It will help them develop a broad theoretical and practical understanding of contemporary migration in Europe and the challenges faced by migrants, in relation to social exclusion and integration, with emphasis on the current situation in Europe.
On a scientific level the program aims to develop arguments in relevance to social exclusion and integration in the context of immigrant and refugee movements, to assess the causes and effects of the migration and refugee crisis on European societies of reception and onthe migrant populations themselves and to provide motivation for further research in the field.
Study Visits: In conjunction with the seminars, the program includes two days of study visits. Athens provides an ultimate setting for carrying out this program, as Athens comprises the main city of temporary or permanent stay for immigrants and refugees in the country and offers a unique environment that facilitates participants’ deeper engagement.
