Call for Applications: Global Politics Summer School Jordan 2018

Dear students,

The Middle East is in disarray, millions of refugees are fleeing Syria, Iraq and other countries for safer shores. Palestinian refugees in these countries are being uprooted again and search for a secure haven. Migrants are wandering in search of opportunities and a future. In times of globalization, what are the challenges facing them, what are opportunities that they and their families have? How do Middle East countries cope with this situation and what does it mean for Europe? How do the youth in Europe and the Middle East cope with the uncertainty? What rights do migrant workers have and are these rights guaranteed and protected?

These and more questions will be discussed in the “Global Politics Summer School” in Jordan. The school is organized jointly by the Center for Global Politics of the Freie Universität Berlin and the German-Jordanian University in Amman.
