Migrants, Human Rights, Democracy
The Summer School, organized by the Department of Psychology, Educational Science and Human Movement - University of Palermo, continues the conversation on “displaced lives and vulnerability” in the Euro-Mediterranean area, through various practical and theoretical contexts. The aim of this year edition is focused on a number of ethnographical insights of the refugees/forced migrants at the EU borders and the challenges of human trafficking and modern slavery forms. The life narratives of the refugees and displaced population, experiences of various NGOs and international organizations, will be an essential part of the five intensive-studying days of the program. By access to the situation “on the ground”, the participants will have a unique opportunity to grasp the lives of refugees and displaced population as multisided prospectus of different personal and institutional levels, and understand how they are linked to each other, and above all to the daily lives of the displaced population in the borders.
