Through the scholarship provided by the International and Regional Studies Institute based on the ongoing cooperation with the EPLO for three years, six Faculty of Law students participated in the variety of EPLO academic programs also this year. From those, law student Anna Kecskés, and the two Ph.D students, Beya Amouri and Mawad Shady took part in the Migration Summer School program. Additionally, three Ph.D students, Jarmo Gombos, Ferdous Rahmani and Yasin Tokat attended in the Academy of European Law program.


Migration Summer School Program


The program organized between 20-25 July 2020 provided a comprehensive knowledge on the recent developments and challenges faced by migrants with a main focus on integration and social exclusion of migrants and refugees. Selected professionals who are expert on the migration studies together with its intersection topics such as law, medicine, sociology, and psychology delivered their presentations. These presentations reinforce the students’ understanding the current topics related to integration of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees in Europe. Besides the theoretical and practical understanding of the issues and challenges regarding migration, the need for a growing awareness that could lead for a global discussion, as well as policies combating social exclusion in Europe was highlighted. It also emphasized the current legislative, bureaucratic and administrative challenges in relation to migration and refugee policies. The courses were supported with the real life stories on the victims of human trafficking and child labor that are the problems regarding illegal migration and helped the audiences to understand the situation clearly.
