Research Master in European and International Criminology (ReMEIC) granted to ESL Criminology Department
Nuffic has granted an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership Application for the development of a two-years (120 ECTS) Research Master in European and International Criminology, that is planned to start in September 2018. The ESL Criminology Department coordinates the ReMEIC consortium (with René van Swaaningen as academic director and Joost Steevens as project-manager) that further consists of the Universities of Bologna, Ghent, Istanbul (Koç) and Kent.
The ReMEIC programme focuses on Border Crossing, Security and Social Justice. Next to the five, for this theme particularly well-chosen, consortium partners, ReMEIC has three associated partner institutions in countries that also play a quite specific role in migration-processes into the EU: the universities of Hamburg and Budapest (Eötvös Loránd –ELTE) and the Université Hassan 1er in Settat, Morocco. Next to these, some fifteen stakeholders working in the field of migration have also committed themselves to ReMEIC. Amongst them are e.g. the Greek Ombudsman, the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service IND and the Italian NGO Antigone.
