Summer Course on Family Migration

In the summer of 2016 the Institute for Immigration Law will organize a two-week Summer Course on ‘Migration and the Family in the Globalising World’.

Only students of an honours college of Leiden University are eligible to participate in the course.

During the Summer Course, various topics relating to family migration will be discussed from different perspectives. The programme consists of seven sessions, a field trip and a symposium to be organised by the participants themselves. The topics of the sessions are:

-The family and migration: An introduction
- Looking back: family migration policies in the past century
- Children and the family: What is in the best interests of the child?
- Left without a family: unaccompanied minors in the EU and the US
- Transnational families in the globalizing world
- The EU and family migration: Who holds the keys?
- The family, migration control and human rights

The instructors of the Institute of Immigration law, in cooperation with guest lecturers from other disciplines and universities, will thematically discuss these issues with the honours students.

Registration for this Summer Course is possible from the end of November. Students which are eligible for participation will be informed by e-mail. For more information click here.
