2019 Migration Summer School Athens

admin 3rd April 2019

The 3rd Migration Summer School (MIGSS): ‘Moving Beyond Crisis? From exclusion to integration of migrants and refugees in Europe’ is a summer program carefully designed and developed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of issues regarding the integration of immigrants and refugees in Europe and on a scientific level 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 on the migrant populations themselves and to provide motivation for further research in the field.

This will be achieved through lectures and discussions led by internationally acknowledged professors and experts, as well as through two days 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 Summer program will take place in a place of cultural heritage, by the sea, in Athens, Greece from 22nd to 27th July, 2019.
