The Schengen Summer School of Luxemburg University and the LUCA are pleased to invite you on Saturday September 10, for a keynote with Saskia Sassen, renown Dutch-American sociologist. She aims to uncover the broader systemic logic behind novel forms of migratory flows. Tracing them within the multiscalar and often extreme contexts that generate them, they can be interpreted as social, economic and ecological expulsions connected to often lengthy structural transformations resulting from new forms of advanced capitalist development. Migratory flows are thus interwoven not only with intensifying processes of financialization, but also with new forms of primitive accumulation that lead to a global loss of habitat. Within this context, and while these conditions are operating, at the global, regional and urban geopolitical level, the role of cities as frontiers of diversity and inclusion, is especially challenged. The Schengen Summer School of Luxemburg University will look into the issue of the impact that the various forms of migration might have on urban planning and architecture and how architects and city planners can get involved in approaches to integrate migrants and refugees.
