Unleashing the potential of legal migration through a whole-of-society approach

APPROACH is a 5-days intensive course on of the potentialities and obstacles to legal migration from a whole-of-society perspective. Hosted by the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence on the Integration of Migrants in Europe (IntoME), it takes place at Tuscia University in Viterbo, providing attendees with an extensive and thorough understanding of key drivers shaping regular migration:

1) legal migration for work, which is connected to the skills divide, the attraction of talents and the recognition of qualifications;

2) extended family reunification and education pathways, which relate to the relevance of family unit and education for young generations in domestic social policy;

3) humanitarian admission via resettlement, complementary pathways and other “active refugee admission policies”, applicable in situations of protracted and mass displacement.

These dimensions will be explored from an interdisciplinary and multi-stakeholder perspective, at local, national and supranational level, accounting for the contribution of organised civil society, diasporas and grassroots groups.

With a view to offering high-level theoretical skills and practical competences, all lectures will be given by leading academics, practitioners and experts in the fields of labour law, welfare studies and public policies, geography and territorial processes. Lectures and seminars will be delivered in English and this will be also the working language for the afternoon training sessions.

Target group

Master’s and PhD students, Erasmus and international students, practitioners in the field of migrant studies. The STS activities have been scheduled in hybrid mode, to allow participation both in person and online.
