This summer school provides insights into the state of the art of theoretical and empirical migration research. Renowned specialists in their fields will provide an introduction to the current state of the art in their specialty areas. The focus of this year’s summer school will be on network approaches to migration studies as well as migrants’ social capital and self-organization. Selected quantitative, as well as qualitative research methods, are introduced and discussed in more detail in small working groups. Overall, the program offers advanced M.A.- and Ph.D. students the opportunity to present and discuss their research projects in a professional environment of scholars and experts.



The program consists of a mixture of plenary lectures, three parallel workshops in advanced and innovative methods of empirical migration research, and three parallel workshops in selected advanced theories of migration research. All scholars will present their M.A.- and Ph.D. projects in a plenary and poster session. In addition, many projects will be discussed in depth during two plus two parallel workshops.
