Summer School on Migration, Integration and Ethnic Relations
Migration has made European countries ethnically and culturally more diverse. While migrants try to find their way in a new and sometimes hostile environment, host populations also have to adapt to migrants and the new religious and cultural diversity they bring with them. Often, this leads to quite severe intergroup tensions.
In this summer school, we discuss social scientific theories and empirical research on international migration, the socio-economic and cultural integration of immigrants and their children, and reactions of the host society.
The two-week course covers a broad range of topics related to migration, integration, and ethnic relations, such as reasons for international migration, modes of immigrant adaptation and acculturation, national and ethnic identity, religion, stereotyping, discrimination, inequality, social networks, and inter-ethnic contact. The course is directed at advanced Bachelor and Master students (3 ECTS).
