At the 13th Forum of the Vukova Zadužbina held on Monday, December 4, 2023, in the Banquet Hall of the Vukova zadužbina, the project International migration of students in the context of Serbia and (re)construction of identity: Key issues and elements for public policies (IS-MIGaIN) financed by the Science Fund of the Republic of Serbia within the IDENTITIES program has been presented.
The project was presented by Principal Research Fellow Vesna Lukić (Principal investigator) and Nena Vasojević, Research Associate from the Institute of Social Sciences in Belgrade. Slavko Vejinović, manager of affairs, greeted those present on behalf of the Vukova Zadužbina.
During the conversation that followed the presentation of the project, the current issues of studying members of minority groups from Serbia in their home countries and the conditions of studying in Slovenia in the Slovenian language were opened. On the other hand, a question was raised about the quality and availability of teaching programs intended for international students in Serbia, as well as their social position (accommodation, food, and scholarships). The state of inclusion of new migrants from Russia and Ukraine in the higher education system of Serbia turned out to be an equally topical issue.
The research is carried out by scientific researchers of the Institute of Social Sciences, with partner institutions, the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Novi Sad, the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade, and the Institute of Architecture and Urbanism of Serbia.
