Summer school: Transnational childhoods in Europe

  • Application deadline
    June 1, 2024 00:00 - June 1, 2024 23:55

 

Families that are geographically dispersed due to economic or forced migration; families in which a member works abroad almost continuously; families in which a (mostly) young person lives abroad for a longer period for study or internship,… Obviously, the realities of transnational families are very different. By attending this summer school, participants will get an improved understanding of the growing, rapidly changing phenomenon and dynamics of transnational families.

  • The theoretical basis in lectures and workshops will be offered by an internationally composed team of specialized psychologists and social scientists.
  • Field visits of organizations working with transnational families, refugee families and children… will confront the participants with relevant methodologies and how to apply them in this context.
  • We promote exchanges between researchers and stakeholders from different countries, disciplines, and research communities on transnational families.

 Deadline: 1 June
