What does (human) migration mean? Why do people leave their homes and partially families behind? What are the problems migrants and especially refugees have to face? Between opportunities and challenges, what are possible migration impacts on/in Europe?

During the seminar, we will learn about, discuss and research different aspects of migration. We will have a deeper look at the discussion about and (self)representation of migrants.

The detailed focus will base on your expectations presented in the application!

Last, but not least, we will deal with the question, what this has to do with us and what the role of us, as part of the civil society, could be.
