Refugees and ‘refugees’: Challenge for the World, not (just) for Europe

The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) is a global nonprofit organization representing and coordinating a membership of over 100 national United Nations Associations.
Monday, June 27, 2016
The Faculty of Social Sciences, in partnership with the United Nations Association of Slovenia has launched the Academia Aestiva Internationalis Summer School, for young activists aged between 18 and 30 years. The conference will be organized in Ljubljana between 27 June and 1 July 2016.

The conference will address current global issues concerning migrations. It will present lessons learnt from the European refugee crisis, and reflect on the ‘management’ of the crisis, from both regional and global perspective. The summer school will focus on historical, cultural, legal, political, and sociological aspects of the so-called ‘refugee problem’. Interactive lectures, workshops and debates will be carried out by professionals and experts with references and expertise in related field of work. 

There is no participation fee. The organizers will provide coffee breaks and free transportation around Ljubljana. Unfortunately there are no scholarships for travelling expenses or accommodation available.

Young volunteers and activists are invited to apply. Deadline for application is 5 June 2016. The number of participants is limited; applicants will be notified about the selection by 10 June 2016.
