Call for the Migration Winter Academy:
A Global Protection Crisis? Causes, Consequences and Futures

The Migration Policy Centre is now taking applications for the inaugural Migration Winter Academy which will take place in Florence from  5 to 9 February 2024.

The Winter Academy provides an opportunity to take advantage of the unique research facilities of the international campus of the European University Institute (including the Library) and to network with an enriching mix of postgraduate students, civil servants, officials at international organisations, representatives from NGOs and other civil society organisations, journalists, policy analysts, and teachers from around the world.  The Academy will:

  • Explore state-of-the-art research on global and regional trends on the protection of migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers on a global scale;
  • Compare recent policy and regulatory shifts on issues of asylum, border management, displacement, human trafficking, migrant integration, international protection, and statelessness;
  • Think critically about protection gaps;
  • Engage in peer learning and immersive networking with an outstanding mix of professionals

The Winter Academy will take place in a fully residential mode and will follow a problem-oriented approach to encourage critical engagement. Participants will also be provided the opportunity to present their own work and receive feedback from the tutors and their peers. Over the course of the 5 days, participants will be supported by extensive background material, debates, group work, individual drop-in sessions with tutors plus sessions during which attendees can present their own projects.
