The School is promoted by ECSR, Collegio Carlo Alberto and by the universities of Milan and Turin in the frame of the NASP, Network for the Advancement in Social and Political Studies. It provides high-quality training on leading-edge theories and methodological approaches to the quantitative analysis of contemporary migrations and of the integration of migrants in the host societies.

  1. a) lectures on key current issues in the field;
  2. b) an intensive course on the longitudinal analysis of the life course of migrants and their offspring (including hands-on practical work);
  3. c) the opportunity to present their work and have it discussed by leading scholars in the field.

The School is organized by Gabriele Ballarino (University of Milan), Tiziana Caponio (Collegio Carlo Alberto and University of Turin), Fabrizio Bernardi (ECSR, EUI), Irena Kogan (University of Mannheim) and Lucinda Platt (London School of Economics).
