​​Summer School on Human Rights, Minorities and Diversity Management

Since 1999, the Institute for Minority Rights has been organizing a two-week long Summer School on the topics of Human Rights, Minorities and Diversity Management. The international Summer School attracts students from all over the world, offering them a platform to discuss current topics in the field of diversity management with experts from inside and outside of academia through seminars, role plays, workshops and field trips. 


Who should participate?

  • MA and PhD students interested in minority rights, migration and migrant integration, diversity governance.
  •  Lawyers, economists, political and social scientists and others working in non-governmental organizations;
  • Civil servants from local, regional or national administrations who primarily deal with minority and diversity related issues and therefore require both theoretical and practical training on those issues;
  •  Journalists and teachers interested in recent developments, current theories and advanced training on issues concerning minorities and diversity. 


The Summer School takes place in the city of Bozen/ Bolzano (South Tyrol, Italy). Bozen/ Bolzano is inhabited by a German-speaking minority, a majority population of Italian speakers, and a third group of migrants and immigrants constituting 13% of the city’s population.

In some of the most recent editions of the summer school, participants also spent some days in Switzerland, hosted by the Foundation Convivenza.


Publishing opportunities

Participants may choose to write an essay after the Summer School. The best essays may be published in the European Diversity and Autonomy Papers.
