From 10 to 30 May, members of the Jean Monet PolidEU project work group implemented module 9 "Identity through the prism of assimilation of immigrants and the preservation of values of multiculturalism" at the Faculty of International Relations. Twenty-seven students of the second and fourth year of studies in the field of "International Relations", "Regional Studies", "World Economy" and studying French as the first and second foreign language took part in the work.

Since the module was doubled in volume in the 2016-2017 academic year and amounted to 22 academic hours, a dossier on immigration in the EU was developed for the classes, as well as additional topics of project work:

  1. Development of the migration crisis in Europe: the chronology of events (Déroulement de la crise migratoire en Europe: chronologie des événements).

  2. The EU response in the context of the migration crisis (Réponse de l’UE à la crise des migrants).

  3. The perception of immigration in the EU (Perceptions des migrants à l’UE).

  4. Challenges to European identity during the migration crisis (Défis identitaires de la crise des migrants).

Based on the results of the work, the students who prepared the projects were awarded certificates of the participant signed by the project manager, Ph.D., prof. Elena Alekseeva and the head of the VSU International Cooperation service Oleg Belenov.
