Borders and Bridges - Migration

The issue of migration is a hot topic in today’s Europe, but why? A mass global movement of humanity is taking place, as is evidenced by phenomena ranging from the tragic drownings in the Mediterranean to the so-called ‘brain drain’ within Europe itself. This theme examines some of the reasons behind such migrations and asks us to consider how we might better understand today’s voluntary and forced movements of people in light of European historical examples.

Who do you think you are - Identity

How do you define your identity? And what might such characteristics be? Identity constantly shifts and evolves, and therefore our views about who we are and who others might be are open to change. This theme examines the multidimensional nature of identity and draws on past and present examples, getting us to ponder on what European identity might mean in the 21st century.
