Dear Forced Migration,
I hope this email finds you well. I write to you to kindly request your assistance in promoting the 17th edition Odysseus Network Summer School on EU Immigration and Asylum Law and Policy. We believe that many members of your network would be interested in participating, and their attendance at the Summer School would also be enriching for the other participants. In particular, it would be greatly appreciated if you could send details of the Summer School to your mailing list.
I am sending below the text for the mailing.
Please do not hesitate to contact me, if you require any further information. We really hope that you can help us to make the Odysseus Summer School 2017 a success and value any assistance that you are able to provide in widely promoting it.
Best regards, and I look forward to your response,
With best regards,
Academic Coordinator of 2017 Odysseus Summer School
Odysseus Summer School 2017 (including 4 grants for PhD students)
Registration for the 17th edition of our Summer School on EU Migration and Asylum Law and Policy is open, and the brochure (available in English: http://odysseus-network.eu/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/EN-Summer-School-Brochure-PRINT-2017-1.pdf // disponible en franšais: http://odysseus-network.eu/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/FR-Summer-School-Brochure-PRINT-2017.pdf) is available.
The Summer School has been designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the immigration and asylum policy of the EU from a legal perspective. The programme is organised by the Odysseus Academic Network under the umbrella of theInstitute for European Studies of the UniversitÚ libre de Bruxelles (ULB). Participants in the Summer School typically include PhD and graduate students, researchers, EU and Member State officials, representatives of NGOs and International Organisations, lawyers, judges, social workers and more.
In addition to the classes, evening debates and visits to the European Institutions, the course provides an excellent opportunity to spend an intellectually stimulating fortnight and to network among a group of around one hundred fellow participants specialised in the area of asylum and immigration coming from all over Europe. The setting of the summer school in Brussels, capital of the European Union, creates a unique environment that facilitates participants' deeper engagement with the EU institutions.
In more a PhD Seminar offers up to 10 doctoral researchers the opportunity to present their PhD project and receive feedback from a panel of Odysseus Network's Members from various European universities and possibly one high-level practitioner attending the Summer School. The PhD Seminar is aimed at researchers in law, but applications from researchers in political science or international relations dealing with legal aspects are welcome. The sessions are in English, but may be organised in French upon request.
Four grants are available for PhD students and will be attributed on the basis of academic record and financial need.
Scholarships for Refugees
In the context of the current crisis, we want to invite 10 students recently recognised as refugees in the EU to participate to the Summer School.
We want to give to refugee students the possibility to pursue their education and gain knowledge in EU immigration and asylum law and policy as well as to discover the capital of Europe and the European institutions.
Due to a crowdfunding campaign, we hope to be able to fund the full participation of around ten participants who hold refugee or subsidiary protection status in Europe. The funds cover registration fees and transportation costs, accommodation and living expenses for the entire duration of the Summer School. Please consult our website for the eligibility criteria and the application process: http://r.newsletter.eumigrationlawblog.eu/tfaw7e5a3word.html
