The 2023 EUniWell Summer School on Migration and Diversity in European Cities (MADEINEUROPE) will bring together postgraduate students (Masters and PhD level), practitioners and internationally renowned academics in the field to explore the frontiers of migration and diversity research.
Migrants have formed a substantial part of many European societies for centuries. Yet, over the past three decades, the size, speed, and spread of human mobility has grown in significance.
These accelerated changes are transforming local communities and the dynamics and politics of diversity at destination, as well as at origin. Cities are the primary destination of migrants and where migration-driven diversity is occurring at a faster pace. They are also strategic sites for the formation of new types of identities and communities that stretch across national borders and new political subjects and possibilities of social transformation.
At the 2023 MADEINEUROPE Summer School on Migration and Diversity in European Cities, we approach these changes and dynamics through a range of interdisciplinary perspectives on migration, diversity and inclusion. The Summer School is organised by six European universities part of the EUniWell Network and led by Professor Nando Sigona, director of the University of Birmingham’s Institute for Research into Superdiversity.
The Summer School will take place from 29 May to 30 June 2023 and includes online lectures, seminars, workshops and mentoring and a final in-person event in Nantes (France) on 29-30 June 2023.
The language of instruction will be English.
