Main achievements of the project embodied in public reports, scientific outputs and research publications will be in open access. To mention a few, the following outputs are anticipated:
- inventory of national and transnational reports on migration-related actors, processes and practices, results of training needs analysis;
- inventory of modules and educational resources;
- MOOC course for NGOs. (The list is to be updated)
Dissemination materials and the promotional videos, including short video clips taken from the material produced for the MOOC course will be uploaded on a dedicated Youtube® channel.
O1 – GLocalEAst transnational reports on educational and training needs analysis
This output is the groundwork for the development of the project, as it includes the drafting of accurate reports aimed to map national, regional and local migration actors, policies, processes and practices that nowadays characterize migration issues in every partner country involved in the project. The full partners have scrutinized the practices adopted in national and local migration policies, highlighting related needs and constraints in a transnational perspective. Below you can find national reports for each partner participating in the project (in aplhabetical order).
The output consisted of three parts O1 / A1, O1 / A2 and O1 / A3 specified below.
Studies on higher education curricula have been designed to provide an overview of the current state of migration education within the higher education systems of the countries involved in the project.
O1 / A2 – GLocalEAst case studies on actors, processes and practices related to the integration of migrants.
The case studies focused on mapping national regional and local actors in the field of migration, as well as migration and integration policy processes and procedures in all partner countries involved in the project. These reviews set the groundwork for the development of GlocalEASt National Reports (O1/A2). The reviews of HE programs had been designed to develop a state-of-the-art overview of migrations issues as framed in national HE systems of the countries involved in the project.
Transnational report O1 / A3 GlocalEAST on the analysis of education and training needs Final_O1_A3
The final report under O1 provides a comparative study, based on the cases of countries involved in the GlocalEAst project. It maps the requirements of practice for people who apply in the field of migration management and work with disporal communities. It also identifies the shortcomings of the currently offered educational areas in these areas precisely with regard to the requirements of practice.
O2 – Intellectual Output – Design, Development and Testing of common GLocalEAst Syllabi
The intellectual output of O2 is the mainstay of the project. It includes the design, development and testing of common GLocalEAst syllabi and teaching materials for the implementation of a new curriculum in the field of migration, diaspora and frontier studies with a focus on Eastern and Central Europe.
The prepared educational units reflect the needs of education and training during the first stage of project implementation (intellectual output O1). In addition, the consortium created 4 thematic units, within which the members of the association interdisciplinary content of education.
– Policy Department 1: Ethnicity and Identity Policy in Central and Eastern Europe;
– Policy Department 2: Moving Borders in Central and Eastern Europe;
– Theme 3: Global Migration, Diasporas and Integration of Migrants in Central and Eastern Europe;
– Theme 4: Conflict and security in Central and Eastern Europe.
Within the thematic units of the consortium, we are preparing the theoretical background of the courses. The second part of the courses will focus on the acquisition of practical skills and specific knowledge with a focus on time studies from the regions: Baltic, Vyšehrad, Western Balkans and Eastern Europe.
The project-implemented approach to the study of migration, diaspora and border issues brings the potential for portability as well as regional expertise. On the one hand, an interdisciplinary approach within the specified thematic areas allows the application of the transfer of educational and research practices to other regions as well; on the other hand, structuring the curriculum according to a case-by-case approach from the region can help to gain regional expertise and sensitivity to specific problems at local / regional level.
