EUROSUD International Master student at her InternshipMeet Ilaria, who chose EUROSUD International master programme because of its focus on the Mediterranean as a region and after volunteering in Gaziantep, Turkey where she worked with vulnerable refugee children coming from Syria and Afghanistan.

Her topic of interest is migration and Europe’s relations with the Arab world. After completing the first three semesters of her International Master Degree in University of Glasgow, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and Aix-Marseille, she is now in Bologna, Italy doing her internship as a reception operator for asylum seekers and refugees.

She will spend the first three months in a first reception centre helping out in the legal area, in the process of obtention of international protection; and the last three months in a second reception centre where she will contribute to programs of social, cultural and work integration. Her hope is to have her own NGO one day, to assist and support vulnerable refugee minors in their new life; to teach them languages and to create intercultural exchanges through music 🎼 , art 🎨, and cooking 🥘 “.
