11th Migration Summer School: Multiple Approaches to Migration: Challenges at Origin and Destination

June 22, 2015 /// 00:00July 3, 2015 /// 00:00

Participation fee: 2200 Eur.Participants of the 11th Migration Summer School will study, through a variety of disciplinary approaches, the challenges that migration poses for countries of origin and destination. In countries of origin, migration can bring development, through various forms of remittances, but it can also exacerbate already existing socio-economic inequalities. In countries of destination, host societies benefit from new sources of labour, but many find it difficult to ensure the full integration of immigrants and their descendants. In the European context in particular, a number of countries are currently struggling with how to modify citizenship laws that currently exclude European-born children of foreign parents.
