Every July, in partnership with the Department of Sociology of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Milan, Fondazione Migrante, and the Scalabrinian Agency for Cooperation and Development, SIMI organizes the Summer School “Migration and Global Justice”.
In recent years, there have been numerous educational and training initiatives about the growing phenomenon of international migration. In this context, the Summer School on “Human Mobility and Global Justice” aims to distinguish itself for a sort of “re-positioning” of perspective which includes a broad analysis of the human mobility processes. From this perspective, the topic of global justice is analysed in all its economic, political, social, cultural and ethics implications.
Through theoretical lectures, with the participation of scholars and experts, roundtable discussions, dynamic case studies, and practical exercises, the School offers an opportunity for cultural, professional as well as human growth. Taking the distance from the most common exploited arguments of the political debate, the Summer School provides a “qualitative leap” vis-à-vis the unsophisticated interpretations often related to migratory phenomenon, its protagonists and its governance.
The Summer School is offered to students and Ph.D. candidate; civil servants, social workers and professionals actively involved in the field of migration and development cooperation; directors of pastoral of migration, work and family; teachers and trainers, researchers and scholars, directors of associations, volunteers, journalists and other communication actors.
Participation is recognized by the Department of Sociology of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart (Milan, Italy) with 3 ECTS as elective course (chosen by the student).
Certificate of Attendance will be provided to participants at the end of the School. The Summer School is included in professor’s training and updating initiatives organized by the University and recognized by the School administration according to the current legislation.
