From this month I am a visiting scientist at the University of Turin – working to develop international collaborations on migration research.
(…and doing my bit to keep intra-European networks going, no matter what! ) 🇪🇺

MA Migration, Society and Policy

Middlesex University is launching a new MA Migration, Society and Policy

With migration regularly at the top of the European and global agenda, the need for skilled professionals who can make sense of the raw data, grasp complex policy systems and assess their impact on contemporary societies is more apparent than ever.

This master’s degree offers a contemporary and interdisciplinary focus on migration and related socio-political and policy issues, combining theoretical, methodological and practice-oriented training relevant to a number of career routes in academia, policymaking, the public sector, the community sector and NGOs.

It features a wide range of study options from disciplines such as law, politics and sociology, as well as incorporating opportunities to undertake field trips, placements and internships, both locally and internationally.

For further information visit the MA Migration, Society and Policy or contact the programme leader (Alessio D’Angelo – a.dangelo@mdx.ac.uk)

European Toolkit for Schools

The European Toolkit for Schools is now online! It gives access to measures and resources from many EU countries to support effective and high quality education. The toolkit follows 2 years of work of the European Commission Working Group on Early School Leaving, which included representatives and experts from across Europe.

Really glad to have played my part in this exciting process as an advisor to the Working Group –  and looking forward to further developments!
