MATILDE Summer School – Submissions Deadline: April 15, 2022

Bussoleno, Susa Valley, Italy – Submissions Deadline: April 15, 2022 (GMT)

MATILDE, a 3-year project funded by EU Horizon 2020 facility, focuses on the impact of migration on the local development of remote places of Europe. CUAS (Carinthia University of Applied Sciences) is one of 12 international project partners.  The Summer School, organized by the project, aims to provide participants with interdisciplinary knowledge on the social and economic impacts of migration, with a special focus on their interactions with territorial inequalities, sustainable development, and spatial justice.

The summer school seeks to strengthen the link between research, teaching and learning, and guide the participants to develop their argumentation and critical analytical thinking. This is expected to allow the participants to enhance their reflective learning outcomes as they will not only benefit directly from the most up-to-date research, but also have an opportunity to bring a contribution to it and take part in the co-production of knowledge.

The MATILDE International Summer School 2022 will be focusing on the discussions around international migration and its challenges and opportunities in remote places and will take place in Bussoleno, a commune approximately 45 kilometres west of Turin in the foothills of the Susa Valley, Italy.

The Summer School has been designed for MA and PhD students/graduates as well as practitioners (NGOs members, local administrators, journalists, etc.) interested in regional development, rural and mountain areas renaissance, and international/internal migration towards these areas
