Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Transnational Migrant Remittances. Summer School 2024.

The Summer School introduces students to the often-separated debates on financial, social, and non-material („intangible“) remittances. From various disciplinary perspectives, participants will explore the ambivalent impact of remittances between supporting families and communities, local development and the (re)production of social inequalities. Interdisciplinary teams will create short podcasts on key aspects of remittances under didactic and technical guidance by the ZfW e-team Digitization in peer-to-peer learning.
