Conoscenze e abilità da conseguire

The objective of this module is to investigate, with the help of international experts, a few different but interrelated topics: the history and evolution of migration and immigration movements, the impact of immigrant business in Europe and the young foreigners’ national identity formation processes, between opportunities and constraints (this entails issues relating to social and cultural interaction; intergenerational relations; citizenship and sense of belonging; future orientations). This new innovative module will be open to all students in Forlì and will include the contribution of European legal experts, historians, demographers, economists and sociologists in order to offer a cross-disciplinary long term view on migration movements and their economic and social impact. It will benefit from the Jean Monnet Chair contribution which will cover all travel expenses of the incoming international experts.


Course contents

The 10 seminars will start on November 6th 2019 - 13-15

They will cover the history of migration from and to Europe and the integration challenges and risks (including topics such as: the history of migrant labour force in Europe, immigrant entrepreneurship, the refugee situation, young foreigners’ national identity formation processes and their education opportunities). Each lesson focuses on a specific issue and each guest speaker will provide a different perspective on migration. Speakers will include historians, sociologists, law scholars, and economists. 

The program is now available:
