LSBU's Cherry James launches her new book which focuses on EU citizenship and student mobility & discusses some of the current issues around this topic
We are very pleased to invite you to the launch of the book ‘Citizenship, Nation-Building and Identity in the EU: The Contribution of Erasmus Student Mobility’ by Cherry James, Senior Lecturer in the Law Division, London South Bank University, published by Routledge/UACES Contemporary European Studies.
The book sits at the intersection of three main interrelated themes - EU citizenship, the current state of the university in Europe, and student mobility - as they play out in the context of an EU funded programme established not least to promote European identity, European consciousness and European citizenship. It considers the role of the language in enabling communication in the public space of the university and considers the practical ramifications of the EU’s cherished policy of multilingualism.
This event will coincide with a conference entitled 'Open borders in Europe: current challenges from migration and from terrorism … working towards solutions' taking place on the same day. For more information, click this link.

Cherry James is a Senior Lecturer in the Law Division at London South Bank University, and the Erasmus Co-ordinator for the Law Division.
