The Global Labor Organization (GLO) supports the International Summer School on Migration and Asylum (migrationschool.eu) in Bologna. migrationschool.eu has joined GLO as an institutional supporter.
The International Summer School on Migration and Asylum is a high-level training organized every year in Bologna. The School is organized by the Italian NGO Africa e Mediterraneo with the support of a number of international partners and sponsors.
Starting from 2018, the Summer School focuses on labor market integration of migrants and asylum seekers, exploring this vast topic from several perspectives, such as: analysis and comparisons of current labor integration policies for migrants and refugees in Europe, certifications and recognition of qualifications, migrants’ self-employment and self-enterprise, and more. Lectures and seminars are integrated with field visits and meetings with experts and professionals working in the field, offering contributions and training on how labour integration of migrants and asylum seekers can be translated into practice in different social and economic contexts.
The next International Summer School on Migration and Asylum will be held in Bologna from 9 -14 July 2018.
The deadline for applications is June 15, 2018! LINK for Registration
