Migration Working Group and Seminars

 

To foster exchange on the latest migration research, the Migration Police Centre hosts both the Migration Working Group and Migration Policy Seminar series. Whilst established scholars participate in both events, the focus of this year’s Migration Working Group is to give early career scholars and PhD students the opportunity to present their research.

Topics discussed in the seminar series overlap with the Migration Policy Centre (MPC)’s key research areas which are:

 

· Public attitudes to migration and migration policies

· Labour markets, welfare states, and migration policies

· Migration, foreign aid, and development

· Migration governance (including migration narratives)

· Border enforcement, migration controls, and mobility practices

· Linking research, debates, and policies

 

Former directors of the Migration Working Group: Anna Triandafyllidou (2012 - 2019), Rainer Bauböck (2008-2012), Jean-Pierre Cassarino (2006-2008), Virginie Guiraudon (2005-2006), Philippe Fargues (2004-2005), Franck Düvell (2002-2004).

There are no upcoming Seminars at this time.
