The Migration Research Center at Koç University, MiReKoc is organizing
its second Summer School Program on July 1-13, 2012. Designed as a
summer school for graduate and PhD students as well as junior experts
in the field, in the premises of Koç University's main campus in
Sarıyer, Istanbul, the program aims at high-level, research-oriented,
interdisciplinary and innovative academic courses on migration as well
as workshops on related policy issues for professional development.
Lectures and discussions given and led by a distinguished
international faculty will also be combined with field trips within
Istanbul involving seminars given by policy-makers and implementers.
While applications from all over the world are encouraged, only a few
number of applicants admitted on merit will be eligible for full
scholarship. This year while five scholarships will be available for
candidates from the Central and Eastern Europe (i.e., Albania,
Bulgaria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Lithuania, Macedonia,
Moldova, Poland, Romania, Slovak Republic, Bosnia Herzegovina, and
Serbia), other partial scholarships will also be granted based on
merit. The summer school will be conducted in English; readings will
also be in English. A certificate will be provided upon successful
completion of the program.
Course offerings will take into account the various needs of academic
and professional development in the field of international migration
across a wide range of disciplines, including anthropology,
demography, economics, political science, sociology, and international
relations. The program seeks to bring together groups of interested
individuals coming from an enormously varied geographical, cultural
and academic background to study intensively. The courses will be
taught by a team of well-known academics in the field who will also
represent a wide range of countries in an effort to match the
diversity of the student body. Such a multi-cultural composition will
provide a stimulating environment for engaging participants and
faculty in an inspiring and enriching dialogue during the summer
school on migration-relation issues.
The 2012 MiReKoc International Summer School is a joint effort of the
Koç University, the IMISCOE Network, the Turkish Migration Research
Group at Oxford University (TurkMis), and the Erste Foundation.
