University of Antwerp, Belgium
26 June – 7 July 2017
Master students and final year Bachelor students who are interested in deepening their knowledge about Europe related diversity and migration issues. Students from all disciplines are encouraged to apply.
Europe’s demography in terms of ethno-cultural composition is rapidly diversifying in an unprecedented way. The majority group in urban areas is morphing into a minority amidst other minorities. This topic has become a priority issue for policymakers at the national and EU-level. There is a great concern at all walks of life and from different ideological perspectives on how to deal adequately with superdiversity as it affects all realms of society. The first edition of the Summer School ‘Europe: Diversity and Migration’ addresses these issues from an interdisciplinary perspective and in doing so, provides participants with insights, practices and skills to understand the current transformation of Europe.
The summer school provides participants with concrete insights, information and tools based on theoretical perspectives, empirical case studies and field visits. In doing so it reveals the interrelations between the micro-, meso- and macro-level processes concerned allowing for fine-grained and in-depth understandings of the complex relationships between migration and integration processes.
4-6 ECTS credits can be awarded upon successful completion of the programme.
Fee includes course material, coffee breaks, farewell dinner, several excursion and social activities. Does not include lunch or accommodation.
