Short description: Antwerp Summer University: an intersciplinary programme studying Europe related diversity and migration issues through a mixture of theoretical, practical and empirical insights

Europe’s demography in terms of ethno-cultural composition is rapidly diversifying in an unprecedented way. The majority group in urban areas is morphing into a minority amidst other minorities. This topic has become a priority issue for policymakers at the national and EU-level. There is a great concern at all walks of life and from different ideological perspectives on how to deal adequately with superdiversity as it affects all realms of society. The second edition of the Summer School ‘Europe: Diversity and Migration’ addresses these issues from an interdisciplinary perspective and in doing so, provides participants with insights, practices and skills to understand the current transformation of Europe.

The summer school provides participants with concrete insights, information and tools based on theoretical perspectives, empirical case studies and field visits. In doing so it reveals the interrelations between the micro-, meso- and macro-level processes concerned allowing for fine-grained and in-depth understandings of the complex relationships between migration and integration processes.
