STG Funds Five Places at Migration Summer School

The scholarships are part of an ongoing collaboration between the School and the Migration Policy Centre.

Five individuals took part in a Summer School at the European University Institute’s Migration Policy Centre (MPC) from Monday 25 June to Friday 6 July 2018, thanks to funding from the School of Transnational Governance.

John Atwebembeire, Jacqueline Owigo, Stephen Sikolia, Amohelang Vivian Lekalakala and Sayed Mahdi Mosawi, shown below with MPC staff, were offered scholarships for the course, as part of an ongoing partnership between the STG and the Migration Policy Centre.

Migration will be a key part of the training at the School of Transnational Governance, thanks to the expert involvement of the Migration Policy Centre.  The topic will shape areas of Executive Training, Policy Dialogues and will inform the courses in the forthcoming Masters in Transnational Governance.

The scholarships covered the fees, travel and accommodation of the individuals at the summer school, who were considered to be outstanding candidates applying from developing countries.

The two-week programme offered a critical discussion of key issues relating to the determinants, effects, and regulation of international migration. Lectures, discussions and workshops engaged in topics including migrant integration, public attitudes to migration and an examination of free movement and social transnationalism in the EU.
