Global Week 2015 gave the possibility to in depth knowledge and respectful talks about global migration.
During the days, we dived deep into questions of what the forces are behind peoples’ urgent needs – or desires – to move within countries, between countries, back to the old home country, or even to travel into outer space. We followed discussions on the so-called migration industry and lectures about economic consequences for national states and migrating individuals alike.
Global Week also posed questions about how journalism and documentary film can give dignity back to the forgotten immigrants and how migration might affect education, teaching and the labor market.
Global Week is now over for this year. Thank all of you, who participated, discussed and networked during the days.
After evaluation and decision by Vice-Chancellor Global Week will now change forms. In future corresponding content will be a part of the seminar series called Global Challenges.
