Programma

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 is caused by the outcome of labour migration in the past, but equally so by continuous migration in the present and the recent inflow of large numbers of refugees. These topics have become a priority issue for policymakers at the national and EU-level. Leading (European) politicians such as Angela Merkel have claimed multiculturalism has failed as a policy strategy, and new ways of addressing diversity need to be found. At the same time, demographers are pointing out Europe's population will be shrinking if the rate of migration does not increase in the coming decades. There is a great concern from different ideological perspectives on how to deal adequately with superdiversity as it affects all realms of society and as continuing inequalities seem difficult to transform. The fifth 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 with regard to diversity and migration.
