MiReKoc International Summer School 2022 "Rights-Based Perspectives in International Migration"

25 July-5 August 2022, Rumelifeneri Campus, Koç University, İstanbul

The program of 11th MiReKoc Summer School reflects the importance of rights-based perspectives in international migration. The program is a 2-week intensive course and participants attend lectures, discussions, and seminars taught by leading academics and professionals in the field of migration.

Reminding the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in which states pledge to “Facilitate orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration and mobility of people, including through the implementation of planned and well-managed migration policies”, this crosscutting theme combined with the challenge against migrants’ access to human rights, the 11th MiReKoc Summer School will focus on rights-based perspectives in international migration through various sessions and lectures that bring together international scholars and PhD students working on migration issues. This year’s Summer School includes lectures and sessions exploring different themes focusing on both law and rights including international and national legislation connected to migration, legal and policy connection, development and integration, right to health, internally displaced persons, international migration, trafficking and asylum laws in migration research to offer a space for scholars and participants to reflect on legal and rights-based challenges.

MiReKoc Summer School serves as a platform bringing future scholars into dialogue with senior scholars and practitioners from the region and beyond. Past schools have attracted participants from different countries and academic institutions, with participants coming from North and South America, Europe, Africa and Asia. Through its various networks, collaborations and projects, MiReKoc has been able to attract esteemed scholars, researchers, policy makers, and practitioners as lecturers in the Summer School.

The Summer School is designed for PhD and graduate students as well as junior experts in the field. The programme includes two weeks of lectures, lab sessions and discussion sessions which will be led by distinguished international faculty members and experts in the field. The participants will have the chance of sharing their research agendas and ideas with these scholars in an interactive environment. The language of the Summer School is English. The fee for face-to-face participation to the program is 1500 Euros covering lectures, course materials, food and accommodation. The hybrid model offers other alternatives including online participation and for face-to-face participants, an option without accommodation. The fees for each preference changes accordingly and detailed below. Two full scholarships are available on a merit basis for outstanding candidates. Some partial scholarships of up to 30% are available for other candidates based on merit and an explanation of their financial constraints. Tuition fee for the students affiliated with institutions from the IMISCOE network and UNIC universities will be reduced by 30%. A certificate will be provided upon successful completion of the programme.
