Students from Slovakia and abroad studying at the Faculty of Social and Economic Sciences discussed migration policies

17 April 2024

The European Migration Network (EMN) in Slovakia continues organizing workshops on the EMN educational tool Destination Europe. On 15 April 2024, twenty students of the Faculty of Social and Economic Sciences of the Comenius University attended a workshop on migration as part of the course Migration in Context. The workshop was delivered by the representatives of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Slovakia as the coordinator of the EMN in Slovakia.

After an interactive presentation on migration, facts and figures in Slovakia and in the world, the students participated in a role activity Destination Europe. They discussed decision-making in the area of migration policies at the local, national and European level and could see how these decisions influence the lives of three migrants – Yulia, Ahmed and Sunil who are in different migration situations.

As the educational tool Destination Europe is available not only in Slovak, but also in English and 10 other European languages, the workshop was delivered in English which enabled an active participation of Slovak and foreign students. While discussing, the students practiced skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and leadership.

EMN Slovakia organizes workshops on the topic of migration as part of which students can try the educational activity Destination Europe. The workshop is divided into two sessions of 1,5 hours each, but the duration can also be adjusted according to the needs of a school or class. The workshops are free of charge. We will be glad to provide you with more information. Please contact us by e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
