Hi! I am Donatus Ikhane OZEMHOYA, a Nigerian, and a first-year student of the Erasmus International Master in South European Studies (EUROSUD). My application to the EUROSUD programme followed my passion for themes around Democracy; Elections; Politics; etc. Meanwhile, sequel to the success of my application, I recently joined the Erasmus Mundus Association (EMA), an international (voluntary) organization with support from the European Union, as the Programme Representative for EUROSUD. This role requires that I act as the go-between for the (prospective) students, the alumni community, the programme administrators, and the EMA; vice versa. The Erasmus Mundus Association's core mandate revolves around projecting the Erasmus culture, globally.

Please feel free to email me anytime at eurosud@em-a.eu for any EUROSUD programme-related support you may need, or perhaps general questions about the ERASMUS Scholarship.

Round Table - The Politics of Religion in Southern Europe - December 2021

The EUROSUD students on Dr Myrto Tsakatika's course, Politics and Society in Southern Europe, were invited to an organised Round Table discussing 'The Politics of Religion in Southern Europe' as part of their Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programme.

The experts involved were Dr Xabier Itcaina (University of Bordeaux), Dr Stratos Patrikios (University of Strathclyde) and Dr Ates Altinordu (Sabanci University), ย Sabanci University is an Associate Partner of the EUROSUD programme. Discussing topics;ย the social role of the Catholic Church in Italy, Spain and France; religiosity, political attitudes and the modernisation of the Greek Orthodox Church; political Islam in Turkey from the 1970s until today.

Dr Itรงaina, focused on the general argument of his book Catholic mediations in Southern Europe. The invisible politics of religion (Routledge, 2019). The presentation aimed at proposing a comparative analytical framework on religion and politics in Southern Europe, here focused on Catholic countries, to the EUROSUD students. As a whole, the composition of the panel, with three papers on different religions (Catholicism, Orthodoxy, Islam) and countries (Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey) was very insightful and gave the floor to an interesting discussion, which kept the students engaged.

It was a great pleasure to see our first cohort of students graduate. These students had a very challenging time with working and travelling to various countries during a world pandemic, coping with sometimes challenging personal issues to have graduated and done exceedingly well in the end result is a proud moment for everyone involved with the students and the programme. Well done - We are all very proud of you!

To all the students who graduated in absentia for various reasons - we were thinking of you on the day!
