What is the objective of the course? What is it?
What does it train you for?

The Master Degree Course (LM) in “Migration, rights, integration” provides a specialized training about contemporary human migrations, and about the problems related to the reception and integration of migrants in European societies. The course aims to train experts on migration and integration issues, with high-level knowledge of the involved legal aspects, and who are able to situate such knowledge in the broader social, geo-historical and economic context. Students will be qualified, on the one hand, to deal with the socio-economic causes of migratory phenomena, and, on the other hand, to focus on their legal regulation, on migrants' rights and on integration policies, always keeping in sight the multilevel framework of the relevant regulatory sources. As regards to the latter aspect, students are provided with the tools necessary in order to orient themselves among the different levels (international, European, national) of the relevant legal regulation, and to ascertain the nature, content and limits of the rights recognized to migrants.
