Refugee Integration Workshop in Barcelona

From 18 until 21 of February 2019 MESCI students attended the joint workshop “Temporary reception facilities in Barcelona: searching for urban refugee integration”. As a result of a one-week interdisciplinary teamwork with other students from the universities Grenoble-Alpes, UIC Barcelona and TU-Darmstadt a variety of promising ideas and policy recommendations were generated on the subject of refugee integration.

Climate change simulation's game

Sustainable development, environment and climate change is the last course before Easter's Break. Professor Alessio  D'amato involved us in a climate change simulation game, during which we figured as nations in charge to reach a climate agreement. As good international cooperation's students we are, we came to the final agreement to not exceed the 2.2 °C increasing in temperature by 2030. Maybe homo economicus is going toward the extinction, giving the way to the cooperative man?

An incredible MESCI's year has already ended

The las week of lessons spent with Dominick Salvatore (professor with honors, director of Fordham University Phd program) closed this MESCI's academic year 2018/19.

The class of this year was one of the best the programme has ever had. We wish to all of them the achievement of their goals in meaningful careers for building a more inclusive and sustainable society.

We are looking forward to meet the incoming students who will start the program in September!
