2020 MIGSS: Precarious integration? Migrants, Refugees, Rights & Policies
Over the past years, Europe and especially Southern European Countries have faced the largest flow of refugees and immigrants in their recent history. No one can ignore the social controversies, the policy inadequacies and the tragedies that accompany migration as well as the precarious life immigrants and refugees of all ages and both genders are forced to endure. They battle to survive in the social margins while their social and human rights are encroached upon. Migration has social repercussions on both the reception society and the migrant populations. Even in these times of deep economic recession, European countries are perceived as lands of hope by impoverished populations. The phenomenon has put pressure on and affects both citizens and migrants, regarding: demography, community and association organization, religion, employment public health, education, border control and public order, housing, deviant activities, rise in racism and xenophobia. A dominant question for migration policymakers has been how to integrate the incoming populations into society. Addressing and managing migration are issues of fundamental concern to reception countries whose efforts, in order to be effective, must be targeted at economic, social and cultural issues. This course will offer an updated overview of the most important theoretical debates and research findings on migration, social exclusion and integration.
In this context, the course 4rth Migration Summer School (MIGSS): Precarious integration? Migrants, Refugees, Rights & Policies has been carefully designed and developed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of issues regarding the integration of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees in Europe.
The summer school gives participants a theoretical and practical understanding of contemporary migration in Europe, with particular focus on the current situation. 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 provide services to refugees and migrants. This program is organized in collaboration with the European Public Law Organization (EPLO), and will be implemented at the EPLO’s premises at Sounion, Greece. This School will take place from 20th July to 26th July, 2020.
This program will offer participants insights into migration in Europe, highlighting its growing relevance for the worldwide discussion on migration and refugee integration policies and combating social exclusion in Europe. It will help them develop a broad theoretical and practical understanding of contemporary migration in Europe and the challenges faced by migrants and refugees, in relation to social exclusion and integration, with emphasis on the current situation in Europe.
On a scientific level the program aims to develop arguments in relevance to social exclusion and integration in the context of migrant and refugee movements, to assess the implementation of policies, the causes and effects of the migration and refugee flows on European societies of reception and on the migrant/refugee populations themselves and to provide motivation for further research in the field.
