In November 2019, the second cohort of EuMIGS students met in A Coruña, Spain for a two-day get-together and field trip. On the first day, the teaching staff in international migrations at the University of A Coruña organised a round table on “Migration Trends in the Spanish and Galician Contexts”, followed by an exciting walking tour with a “migration lens” through the city. The second day was packed: after a morning round table on “Insights and Challenges of Migration Research in Europe” with the international guests from the other EuMIGS partner institutes, we visited Betanzos, a town shaped by the philantrophy of the first wave of Galician emigration to the Americas. In the afternoon, we met with ACCEM, an organization responsible for the reception of refugees in A Coruña.
And the cherry on top of it all: the culinary treasures of Galicia!
