Tunis/Tunisia — Organised at the initiative of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) Tunisia, the 6th summer school will be held this year on November 16-21 under the theme of Migration and Employment."
Conceived as a comprehensive training programme and organised annually over a period of six days, the summer school offers 60 participants from the academic world, institutions, civil society and social partners the opportunity to acquire knowledge in a specific field related to migration, according to an IOM press release.
Since its creation, the school has helped train over 300 participants, most of whom are public servants, on topics closely related to migration.
The school aims not only to be academically important and rich in content but also to foster networking between stakeholders at national level and to create synergies at regional level.
It targets public officials, academics, civil society and post-graduate students who work on the employment of migrants at different levels. Its aim is to encourage exchange and reflection on the theme of migration between the different actors.
This 6th Summer School seeks to offer a holistic, innovative and progressive vision of labour migration, issues and challenges for the protection of migrant workers to ensure that migration is carried out in a safe, regular and orderly manner.
