The second mini-lecture will address migration trends and is titled: “Leaving on a jet plane? School – life transition and migration: the case of Latvian youngsters”. This lecture will trace how students' thinking has evolved and highlight some trends pre- and post-pandemic.
The lecture will be delivered Thursday 16:00 via Zoom by SSE Riga faculty Dr Kata Fredheim and Dr Zane Vārpiņa. Kata Fredheim is a social anthropologist and does research on migration, internationalization of higher education and Brexit. Zane Vārpiņa does research in higher education and demography.
"Graduating from high school offers students countless options. To work or to study? To stay or to leave? In this presentation we discuss the results of a three year study on Latvian high school graduates. The research is based on survey data from high school students and young adults who already graduated. We also interviewed high school students to highlight their thoughts and feelings about the future, and what drives their career choices," says advance publicity.
SSE Riga students Polina Bocharnikova and Diana Geiushova will present the study project they are writing on high skilled migration from Russia to Germany.
Full details on how to watch the lecture are available at the SSE Rīga website.
The lecture is free of charge and open to the public online.
