Intensive Course on Diversity Management
June 28th – July 11th 2010
Faenza (RA) - Italy

Follow Up

The Intensive Course on Diversity Management, organized by the University of Bologna through the Centro per l'Europa Centro-Orientale e Balcanica, in the framework of the LLP Erasmus Intensive Programme, was successfully concluded on July 10th 2010. The Closing Ceremony was held at the premises of the Municipality of Faenza where the students presented the project results to the Major of the town and other representatives of the city council.

The two-week Intensive Programme was positively evaluated by the students who attended the course, for most of them it was a good experience both in terms of academic achievement and in terms of personal enrichment coming from living and working together and exploring the wide concept of diversity. The intensive programme was also attended by a group of students enrolled at the University of Bologna for the Joint Phd Programme in Diversity Management and Governance, a new programme designed by the Universities of Bologna, Graz, Primorska and Sofia.

Besides class discussions, role plays and workshops, the students were given one extra month to write a final essay on the topic of most interest. The papers were uploaded on the summer school website and are now in peer review for a future publication.

What follows is the list of the students who attended the course, divided by home university, completed with the title of the paper they submitted at the end of the course.
