The Certificate of Advanced Studies on Migration and Diversity analyzes changes in social structures and cultural processes owing to migration.
Migration results in diversification that boots enrichment and creates social challenges. The CAS teaches the skills to engage with others and create solutions that turn problems into opportunities. It explores conditions for larger social inclusion.
Migration streams affect all aspects of social life (public institutions, policy-making, businesses, media, health services, religion and ethics, gender and family). This CAS analyzes resulting changes in social structures and cultural processes within nation-states and globally.
The modules cover structural and cultural aspects of migration, integration and diversity including political participation, social mobility and market inequality, inclusion and belonging, governance of international migration, prejudice and stereotyping, refugee processes, policies, health and social needs.

Immigration is no doubt a topic high on the political agenda and omni-present in everyday debates. Jointly with the Master of Advanced Studies in Intercultural Communication, Università della Svizzera italiana, the Swiss Forum for Migration and Population Studies (SFM) of the University of Neuchâtel offers a Certificate in Advanced Studies on Migration and Diversity. There is still time to apply and joint the serious conversation on immigration.

Today I was awarded a Certificate of Outstanding Contribution in Reviewing for reviews I’ve undertaken last year. To be honest, my first reaction was a bit cynical (I didn’t know about the programme)… I mean what else will they think of next to motivate reviewers? Shouldn’t it be a natural thing to do reviews — something we’re intrinsically motivated to do in our quest for better science? I mean we already get to routinely choose if I want to brag about our reviewing on Publons these days (oh, hang on, are these competing services?). I then came across an explanation of these certificates by Elsevier. I learned that they have been around for 5 years now, and that the editors get to choose 25 awardees! Now this no longer feels so hollow.
