The Migration Policy Centre and the Department of Politics at the University of Sheffield invite submissions for the workshop ‘Dynamics of Regional Migration Governance’ that will be held on 25-26 May 2017 at the European University Institute in Florence. The workshop is linked to the MIGPROSP project.

The workshop will examine the dynamics of migration governance at regional level with a focus on inter-state and transnational dynamics of cooperation. We welcome submissions that consider both the formal dimensions of migration governance evident in rules-based forms of cooperation as well as more informal processes of information sharing, consultation and learning within regional settings.

Deadline: 18 January 2017.
