Project Description

The project is based on the already well established good practice of consortium member institutions working together in prior EC funded project under TEMPUS Programme (517002 - UNIMIG).

As a result of the successful accomplishment of UNIMIG it was decided to bring gained experience to build capacities in Afghanistan for Kabul and Tabesh Universities, by curriculum development, deepening international relations capacity, improving the quality of education and teaching by adding migration related challenges faced by Afghanistan into the teaching schemes of partner country institutions and vice versa.

The project uses the experiences of the MA programs in migration studies within the South Caucasus region to enhance the development of a similar MA program in Afghanistan for ensuring that Afghan Universities are capable to offer curricula/education and research in the field of migration.

The MA program in migration studies will be established together with and through a Migration Competence Centre at Kabul University, which will become a hub for cooperation between academic, research and public institutions.

To enhance sustainability and impact the project furthermore aims at developing LLL training modules for Students, Representatives of Government and CSOs in all partner countries. In order to attract young students/researcher the project also aims to establish an annual Cross-Regional Summer School.
