Dear Colleagues

We are pleased to let you know that the Summer Institute on
International Migration, Ethnic Diversity and Cities 2005 will be held
for the second time this Summer, from June 13th-30th at the
International School for Humanities and Social Sciences, Universiteit
van Amsterdam. The Summer Institute on International Migration, Ethnic
Diversity and Cities is a three-week programme, which seeks to explore
the topical features of international migration and the incorporation of
immigrants in the cities and states of destination. The themes of the
seminar will be approached in an international comparative way, building
on theoretical and empirical contributions of sociologists, political
scientists, anthropologists, geographers, economists, philosophers and
historians. The Institute is open to advanced undergraduate, graduate
and post-graduate students as well as professionals working in a field
related to the topic of the Summer Institute.

We are happy to report that students from 57 countries are now eligible
to attend the Summer Institute under the NUFFIC scholarship program for
short courses. Please tell your colleagues and students about this. The
NUFFIC deadline is Feb. 1, 2005, and before applying to NUFFIC, students
must apply to the Summer Institute and be accepted. We stand ready to
expedite these applications during January, so please share the news and
encourage potential participants to apply quickly. We hope this
scholarship goes a long way in making the Summer Institute more
accessible to students from the global south.
