17th Migra­tion Summer School

Migra­tion and the Pandemic : Taking Stock and Thinking Ahead

The Migra­tion Policy Centre is now taking appli­ca­tions for the 2021 online edition of the Migra­tion Summer School, which will take place from 28th June – 9th July 2021.

The 17th Migra­tion Summer School will focus on the impact of COVID-19 on global migra­tion while also seeking to learn lessons and think ahead. The Summer School will provide an oppor­tu­nity for partic­i­pants to be able to contex­tu­alise and eval­uate patterns and trends in global migra­tion, assess the extent to which these have been affected by the pandemic, and do so in a genuinely global context. To achieve this objec­tive, high-level scien­tific exper­tise will be blended with exten­sive scope for partic­i­pants to discuss their own ideas and to develop an enhanced perspec­tive on their own profes­sional and career development.

Appli­ca­tion Dead­line : 15 April 2021

Through an inno­v­a­tive approach to online provi­sion, the 17th Migra­tion Summer School will address key themes and topics in global migra­tion. Partic­i­pants will be supported by exten­sive back­ground mate­rial, live webi­nars, group work, indi­vidual drop-in sessions with tutors plus sessions during which partic­i­pants can present their own projects. The following eight substan­tive topics will be addressed throughout this year’s course :

  • Migra­tion drivers
  • Migra­tion impacts
  • Migra­tion gover­nance, including ‘global governance’
  • Migra­tion data, including atti­tudes to migration
  • Migra­tion and development
  • Labour migra­tion
  • Citi­zen­ship and integration
  • Asylum and refugee protection
