Uniadrion Summer School – Migration issues in the Balkans

Deadline: 30 July 2018
Open to: young applicants from Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia
Venue: 17-22 September, Ancona, Italy


The school intends to provide an intensive training course for students, young researchers and officers who are interested in the current economic, socio-demographic and political situation of the Balkans. This year the main focus will be on migration-related issues. Lectures will cover topics such as the economic impact of international migration, migration flows in the Adriatic-Ionian region, reconciliation in the post-Yugoslav space, deliberation across deeply divided societies, European territorial cooperation.
The school is open to 30 students from all countries (priority will be given to the EUSAIR countries). Students are expected to attend the school full time.
The school is organised as part of the AI-NURECC initiative (https://cpmr.org/policy-work/cohesion/ai-nurecc/), which UniAdrion is a partner of, funded by the European Commission. It will encourage an integrated dialogue with young people coming from the Adriatic Ionian region to promote the European Strategy for the Adriatic Ionian Region (EUSAIR) with the final aim of introducing young people to the decision-making processes, thus matching the existing gap among Adriatic Ionian young generations and the EUSAIR institutional and technical structures.

The school will take place at Domus Stella Maris (http://www.domusstellamaris.it/) in Ancona.


The school is targeted to 30 students in economics, sociology, political sciences and related disciplines as well as to young officers working for institutions operating in the Balkans and dealing with migration-related issues. Priority will be given to students coming from universities belonging to the UniAdrion association and to students/young officers coming from the countries covered by EUSAIR (Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia).
The participants will be selected on the basis of their CVs and their research/professional interests.
Geographical balance will also be taken into account in the selection process.


Registration fees, including meals and accommodation, will be covered by the organizers. Travelling expenses will not be covered, each student will be responsible for the organization and payment of the travel to and from Ancona.
