3rd Seminar: an innovative, multidisciplinary pedagogical initiative

WP2 Activity for Innovative Joint Initiatives in Teaching & Learning

As part of the activities of the European Reform University Alliance (ERUA), the “EXILES project” takes place in 2022 on the topic of the reception of refugee children in Europe.

This is an innovative and experimental initiative launched by the academic staff at the University of the Aegean, Paris 8 University, and Roskilde University. The initiative consists of three seminar programs, one in each participating university. The program foresees lectures, fieldwork with civil society actors working with migrants daily, activities carried out in groups by students, and convivial moments between students and professors. 

The 3rd Exile seminar is taking place at the University of the Aegean, Lesvos Island, Mytilene, on 10-12 May 2022. Students, researchers, and associates from the 3 ERUA Universities are been connected with social and civil actors in the seminar program that includes stories, art, and experiences from refugees and NGOs, local visits in order to be acquainted with the town, and its old and new inhabitants.

UAegean researchers and academics present and transfer their experience, research practices, initiatives, and activities in the Migration and Refugee Crisis in Aegean Archipelagos.
