The Center for Ethnic and Migration Studies (CIMIC) of the University of Liège is glad to welcome applications for the third edition of the IMISCOE 3CI PhD Summer School ‘Migration and Urban Change'. The deadline for applications is: March 27, 2017 - 12AM.

The third 3CI PhD Summer School Migration and Urban Change will focus on the link between migration (old and new, in and out) and urban change, specifically but not exclusively at the cultural and political level. The lectures will address different issues related to the theme of the Summer School. Furthermore, the Summer school will explicitly address two key issues for PhD students: (1) how to get published?; (2) Ethical Issues in Migration research. Finally, fieldwork will be organized in the neighborhoods of the city.

The 3CI PhD Conference includes 5 days of intensive interdisciplinary training by internationally recognised scholars for 30 selected PhD students to support them with content, methodologies and critical perspectives to conduct their research. Successful completion of the 3CI PhD Conference can be awarded with 5 ECTS.

In 2017, the guest lectures are given by the following professors:

Prof. dr. Bieter Bevelander (Professor in International Migration and Ethnic Relations (IMER) at MIM, Malmö Institute of Migration & Professor in Diversity and Welfare and a senior lecturer at the School of IMER, Malmö University).

Prof. Hassan Bousetta (Professor of Sociology and Politics at the University of Liège, and member of the Center for Ethnic and Migration Studies)
