Detail Summary
Start date 4 July 2016
End date 15 July 2016
Time 09:00

The Summer School aims at bringing together students and researchers in humanities and social sciences with an interest in borders and migration. The program is designed to combine theoretical instruction by renowned instructors from six universities with various on-site activities.

The North Eastern Aegean island of Lesvos​ provides an ideal location for holding this Summer School, as it is currently the most important gate of immigrants and refugees to Greece and Europe and the site of a massive humanitarian intervention. The Summer School takes place at the height of the ‘European Refugee Crisis’ and in times of radical transformations and the reconfiguration of borders in national and international levels. The program aims to address political, ethical and theoretical questions in this challenging landscape.

Application deadline: 20 May 2016

Please note that there will be several scholarships available for summer school participants.
