Master Scholarships in Migration and Intercultural Relations, Erasmus Mundus, Europe

The programme combines the European JMMIR network and the Euro-African IMMIS network. Consortium members are: University of Oldenburg (UOL), Germany, University of Stavanger (UiS), Norway, University of Nova Gorica, Slovenia, University of South Bohemia, Czech Republic, Ahfad University for Women, Sudan plus Makerere University and Mbarara University of Science & Technology in Uganda.

The programme combines expertise in migration studies with intersecting fields, such as gender studies, cultural studies, and education and development studies.

Focus
The two key terms of reference for this study programme are migration and intercultural relations. Migration is understood here as encompassing all forms of international migration, voluntary as well as forced movements. Internal displacement, prominent especially in African contexts, will also be addressed. Intercultural relations include not only communication and other forms of interaction between the majority and resident minorities/diasporic communities within nation states but also interethnic relations in the (inter-)national arena and beyond nation states – including multinational settings and concepts such as multiculturalism or cosmopolitanism.

There are four programme main focus:

    * Gender
    * Development
    * Representation
    * Education

The focus serve as the foundation students use to develop their individual specialisation and profile, e.g. by combining them with a geographic focus involving one or more of the countries in the partnership, potentially also linked to individual language skills. The language of instruction is English, but students will be encouraged to enhance bi- or multilingual language skills.
