Short description

The aim of this Migration Studies Ph.D. Summer School is to provide an intensive program that enhances the research exchanges among the group of universities participating, while thinking about the changes on mobility and communities we are experiencing.

This aims at the following subjects:

1. How the world-wide health situation has affected mobilities in Europe and the way researchers focus on the subject.
2. How research is reshaping its way of approaching migration issues in the Euro Mediterranean system.
3. How the public actors are responding new demands and setting up new agendas.

Considering the different topics that the Ph.D. students are developing in their studies, the common concern on methodologies, categories and approaches of analysis will be the main instrumental focus. Therefore, it will be required that students work in teams and create presentations while adapting their research projects to the changes happened since the pandemic was declared.

Multidisciplinary approach

The Migration Studies Ph.D. Summer School offers a multi-disciplinary and international approach on migration studies. By nature, the Ph.D. programme on Migration Studies presents a multidisciplinary design with four lines of research in which the candidates are inserted:

1. Social psychology analysis of migration
2. Cultural and gender analysis
3. Legal and socio-political analysis of migration: Welfare State and management of diversity
4. Globalization and human mobility: migration and labour market

This is “one of a kind” programme in Spain involves more than 60 teaching researchers, from different fields (Political Science, Sociology, Law, Geography, History, Economics, Anthropology, among others) working on migration issues as main area of expertise.

The program includes a range of academic activities such as: lectures (opening and closing lectures), academic and social roundtables, a documentary screening as well as PhD. workshops.

Learning modalities

A) Blended learning modality for teachers and students on Granada campus, and others out campus participating on line.
