REMESO Graduate School update

The REMESO Graduate School in Migration, Ethnicity and Society offers courses for Swedish and international postgraduate students (PhD or MA) that address a variety of theoretical, methodological and empirical perspectives on international migration. Courses are taught by REMESO staff and international guest lecturers.
The course program links current research on international migration and ethnic relations with studies on political economy, labour, citizenship, gender, culture and human rights. Individual courses address issues of asylum, documented and undocumented labour migration, social integration, urban segregation and racism and ethnic discrimination. Run by one of Sweden’s top research institutions in ethnic and migration research, the Graduate School provides an excellent opportunity for PhD students to develop their knowledge base research skills. For Master level students, REMESO courses offer knowledge valued by employers in the public and private sectors dealing with migrant integration, issues of social inclusion and public policy implementation.

Courses Autumn 2015:

Migration and Labour

5 October-6 November 2015, On Campus week 19-23 October
Course Directors: Professor Charles Woolfson, Associate Professors Branka Likic-Brboric and Zoran Slavnic.

Lecturers: Professor Carl-Ulrik Schierup and Associate Professor Anders Neergaard.
Guest lecturers: Associate Professors Johan Lindquist, Department of Social Anthropology, Stockholm University and Annette Thörnquist,  Stockholm University.

This course aims to provide an understanding of the barriers to decent work and protected labour standards in the European and global economy. Empirically, it examines emerging global and regional governance for labour migration and the wider political economy of neo-liberalism, especially in the context of post-communist societies, as well as transitional South African and Asian societies. These broader changes are, in turn, linked to issues of migration and the challenges they present within the European Union, South East Asian and South African  regions.

Deadline September 14, 2015
