First Migrants Summer School in Granada: a journey into Migration Studies
Migrants project inaugurated its first Summer School last Monday July 18th, under the title “Connecting coasts, crossing borders. Current trends in migration research and methodological challenges”, organised by the University of Granada in cooperation with the other project’ partners. The event, which is part of the support program for the organization of “International Doctoral Summer Schools” of the Escuela Internacional de Postgrado, and co-financed by the Migration Institute of the UGR, was aimed at doctoral students interested in the field of migratory studies and aspires to constitute a forum for debate on the subject in light of the most current challenges. At the same time, the summer school reinforced internationalization through the exchange of knowledge and experiences between researchers from academic institutions and third-sector organizations from different countries, including Spain, Italy, the United Kingdom and Tunisia.

Di Rosa (UGR and UNIPA), featured prestigious experts in the field such as Virginie Guiraudon (Centre d’ études européennes et de politique comparée de Sciences Po), who was in charge of giving the inaugural conference on Monday, July 18th.
The summer school brought together more than 30 experts, including teachers and professionals from the Universita Degli Studi di Palermo, the Université de Tunis El Manar, the Université de Tunis, the Université de La Manouba, the University of Westminster, the Unione Delle Universita Del Mediterraneo , and the organizations Cooperazione Per Lo Sviluppo Dei Paesi Emergenti Onlus (COSPE) and Clinica Legale Per I Diritti Umani (CLEDU).
Moreover, 19 doctoral students from 11 different universities in Europe and North Africa participated to the programme, enriching the interesting debate about migration studies.
