Both migration and asylum issues are central topics in national and global governance. The rise in the number of international migrants has been unrelenting over the last twenty years, reaching 281 million people living outside their country of origin in 2022 (United Nations, 2022). An extensive range of reasons and forces have led to unprecedented levels of migration, ranging from safety seeking, persecution, military and civil conflicts, as well as political and economic changes. Reception countries differ immensely regarding their capacity, perceptions and practices to financially and socially integrate migrants and refugees into their societies. Thus, a global framework for handling migration crises is required.
In this context, the course 7th Migration Summer School (MIGSS): "Migration and Asylum in Times of Crises" has been carefully designed and developed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the impact of multiple crises on the reception, management, human rights and integration of immigrants, asylum seekers and refugees. The summer school gives participants a theoretical and practical understanding of the current situation of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees. This will be achieved through lectures and discussions led by internationally acknowledged professors and experts and study visits.
This program is organized by the European Public Law Organization (EPLO). The MIGSS will take place from 24-30 July 2023.
