Migration and Europe: borders, mobility and the future of the EU (International Summer School)

05 March 2017

The Summer School is a joint effort of Middlesex University, the University of Barcelona and the Autonomous University of Barcelona and is planned to take place in London from the 3rd to the 7th of July 2017.

The course is designed to provide participants with an understanding of some major and interconnected issues concerning European migration and mobility. Specifically, the course is divided into five themes:

  1. The challenges to intra-EU mobility and the fragmentation of the European space
  2. Third country nationals: economic and legal perspectives in a reshaping Europe
  3. Refugees in Europe: new solutions or permanent crisis?
  4. Media and political discourses: mainstreaming xenophobia
  5. Rethinking the European space: the role of NGOs and civil society

These themes will be examined from a range of disciplinary perspectives including law, sociology and political science. Classes will be given by professors and professionals in the field of migration, citizenship and refugee studies from different European universities and organizations and will be complemented by practical exercises, discussion and research activities.
