Seminar: Drivers of EU Family Reunification (DREUFARE)

The DREUFARE (Drivers of European Family Reunification) satellite seminar inquires into the dynamic of the family reunification process with a focus on the quantitative, economic and legal dimensions, also including  the cultural traditions which create the demand for family reunification.

Using the language of economics, thus looking at the supply side, the seminar intends to capture why different motivations of migration of family members prevail in different ethnic groups e.g. Philipino and Moroccans. A special focus on the Mediterranean countries will be provided by Prof. Roberta Aluffi, Professor of Islamic Law at the University of Turin, who will lecture on family law in the Mediterranean Countries.

An attempt to link migrants' motivation with the national policies and legislations will complete the supply side analyses with contribution of Professor Consito,  Doctor Celoria and Prof. Venturini  on the drivers of the move.

On the demand side the focus will be on the different national policies of destination countries which condition the process and affect the final number of reunified members. Profs. Strozza  and Gabrielli present the dynamics of the flows and stocks and the integration of family members in Italy and in Europe. 

Prof. Ricucci will discuss the policies implemented in favour of this group of migrants and Prof. Riva will deal with the drawbacks of the legislation in support of their complete integration.

The seminar enables the students to understand the need for an interdisciplinary knowledge of the migrants’ dynamic. It also aims at teaching students how to do research and how to develop specific research topics. The seminar will contribute to building the abilities needed for the final dissertation.
