    About the Award:

    Interdisciplinary in nature, this 14th Migration Summer School provides an overview and critical discussion of key issues relating to the determinants, effects, and regulation of international migration. Examples of topics that will be explored during the two-week Summer School include: the motivations and decision-making processes of migrants; the role of states in regulating international migration; labour immigration policies and the rights of migrant workers; settlement and citizenship; human smuggling and trafficking; asylum and refugees including policy responses to the so-called “migration crisis” in recent years; challenges of integration, particularly in the EU; the role of media in migration debates; public attitudes to migration; migration and development and international governance mechanisms.

    The programme also 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).
