Description of the programme

This summer school asks – what do different crises of solidarity look like in Europe today? What central struggles and tensions are shaping practices and acts of solidarity? And ultimately, what could solidarity look like in the context of the continual movement of people to Europe in large numbers?

The summer school offers participants theoretical and practical insights into this state of continuous and successive crises that Southeast Europe has been experiencing and how this reflects on the idea of solidarity, within the Eurozone ‘crisis’, the ‘crisis’ of liberal democracy, the ‘migrant crisis’, the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine.

Crucially, the programme offers participants direct hands-on experience ‘on the ground’ through the opportunity to engage with NGOs working with refugees and asylum seekers.

The summer school will be carried out in the form of lectures and workshops on migration, integration and solidarity, listening to real life experiences, views and insights from people working in NGOs and public authorities managing migration flows and integration in Greece.
