International Workshop : « The Philippines as a Transnational Hub »

Workshop: “The Philippines as a Transnational Hub: Exchanges Between the Philippines and the EU”

The workshop  aims to explore the deepening ties between the Philippines and the international community, especially the European Union, and the future of human, cultural, scientific and capital exchanges between both sides. Employing a transnational and multi-disciplinary approach, the workshop will bring together both leading and young scholars and experts on Philippine Studies as well as on Philippine-EU relations.

The workshop is comprised of panels on (1) state policies and international relations; (2) migration and mobility; (3) labour and human development; and (4) (ex)changes in culture, identities and natural science. The panel on migration and mobility will tackle research insights, Filipino diaspora in Europe and will also include a session devoted to an open discussion among Ph.D. students’ research on Philippine-EU relations/Philippine studies and possible networking opportunities.
