Mobility — The Way To Success?

27th September— Old University Building, Rheinsprung 9, Basel

Many people today are mobile and migrate for both their professional and private lives. Seizing opportunities, taking chances, and showing flexibility are characteristics associated with highly qualified professionals who choose to relocate.

Relevant considerations for those contemplating relocation include individual aims and wishes, but also career and educational outlooks for both themselves and their family, demands of universities and companies, as well as political and economic conditions.

The Swiss Society for Folklore Studies SSFS, which was founded in 1896 with the aim of researching and documenting historical and modern-day forms of everyday culture in Switzerland, has this year organized a speakers’ series under the theme of “Migration and Mobility.”
