For the 7th time, ICMPD organises the International Summer School on Migration. The summer school is a joint initiative by two ICMPD-led projects: the “Sustaining Migration Management in Georgia” (ENIGMMA 2) project and the “Prague Process: Dialogue, Analyses and Training in Action” (PP DATA) initiative – component of the Mobility Partnership Facility (MPF).

ICMPD invites all interested candidates to apply through March 31st, 2020, midnight CET.

Teaching will be accompanied by research, practical exercises and interactive discussions. In total, up to 50 students from migration studies, journalism/ media studies, international law/ migration law, economy, demography, history and/ or social and political sciences can take part in the summer school.
