The Jean Monnet Network Consortium led by the New York University of Tirana, together with the Institute of East Central and Balkan Europe (IECOB), the University of Dubrovnik, the Sarajevo School of Science and Technology and the European Movement of Serbia, in cooperation with the Central European Initiative is pleased to announce an exciting and timely Winter School program, under the title “Creating Territorial Cooperation: The Impact of the Intercultural Dialogue and Migration Flows in South-East Europe”. The program is implemented under the patronage of Uniadrion (the Association of the Universities of the Adriatic-Ionian Macroregion) and the Legislative Assembly of the Emilia-Romagna Region. The program is carried out with the sponsorship of the Executive Board of the Government of the Region of Emilia-Romagna and the Municipality of Cesenatico.

The Winter School will take place in the delightful seaside city of Cesenatico, in a four stars hotel, with conference hall, from the 12th to the 19th of December 2018.

The Winter School will offer:
– Classes, workshops, simulations and other learning activities (for a total of 56 teaching hours)
– Guest lectures by distinguished scholars with international reputation.
– A study visit and social activities.

At the end of the activities, all participants will be awarded a certificate of attendance issued by the Consortium and including 2 ECTS, recognized by the University of Dubrovnik.

Description of the activities:
The International Winter School will address and discuss the challenges faced by the European and Nation-State governance in relation to security issues and sociopolitical developments through a twofold research focus: migration management and security issues on the one side (involving both the internal migration related to the war in Eastern Ukraine and the external migration faced by Western Balkans in the recent years) and the relationships between minority and majority groups on the other side (through the lenses of the recent ‘encounter’ between local and migrant communities).

Several case studies will be analyzed, and specifically those of Hungary, Serbia, Croatia, Albania, Macedonia and Ukraine. In addition, the School will focus on new conceptualizations emerged in academic debates (such as métissages, cultural nomadism, interculturality, diversity management and deliberation), on gender relations, and on the existing legal, social and cultural instruments for the protection of minorities in the broader sense.

The International Winter School will provide frontal lessons, class discussions, collective presentations and round tables with a strong interdisciplinary approach. In addition, a one-day cultural visit will be organized during the School. The School is organized during the second semester of the first year of the project and will last seven days. It will take place in Cesenatico, Italy.

We are absolutely sure that our program will be an excellent opportunity for students to learn, discuss and reflect on timely questions. The selected topics are:
›Migration, populism and identities (compatibilities and incompatibilities)
›Migration as a phenomenon
›State policies, territorial cohesion and inclusiveness
›Diversity Management: Deliberation across deeply divided societies: applied methodologies
›Challenges of post-war reconciliation
›Regional cooperation, civil society and reconciliation
›Europeanization and interculturality
›Social media and migrations

Target participants:
Students in social sciences and humanities; CSO activists; professionals with an academic and/or executive interest in the topics of the program. Participants from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Italy, Serbia, and other Uniadrion member-state partners as Greece, Montenegro, and Slovenia are particularly encouraged to apply. Participants from Macedonia and Ukraine are also welcome. The maximum number of accepted participants to the Winter School is 30.

The deadline for receiving applications is: 25 November 2018 at midnight. All applicants will be informed via email about the results of the selection by 28 November 2018.
