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 program on migration relation issues.
