Launch of an International Network for Students of Migration Studies

We are a diverse group of students studying – and often experiencing – the governance of migration. We believe that this is a topic that needs to be approached globally – in every sense of the word. Therefore, we thought it would be very useful and fun to develop a network to connect, learn from each other and grow together! We would like to invite you into an open environment with people of diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives to exchange on all aspects related to migration.

This network is created by students for students. It is intended as a contact point for prospective students, as a platform to further one’s studies through innovative and practical learning as well as through own initiatives and to offer guidance for the transition into the working world. It serves as a platform to connect with each other, share (personal) experiences, information and (digital) events, as well as internship/research assistant/traineeship/PhD/job vacancies.

The connection to other universities and programs and the close collaboration with their students is the foundation of this network. Are you a member of a student board or a student representative interested in collaborating? Or would you like to join our international communications team to make this a vibrant and lively community and bring your ideas to this project?
