Workshop: The Dynamics of Regional Migration Governance, 25-26 May 2017, European University Institute, Florence


Thursday 25 May 2017 - Friday 26 May 2017 , European University Institute in Florence

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. The workshop is interested in the varying ways in which cooperation on aspects of migration has been included within diverse regional settings. This could include employment, family and study-based migration, as well as international flows of displaced people.

Call for abstracts

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. We understand regional governance in its broadest sense to encompass an array of different forms and types. We would particularly encourage submissions that explore the regional governance of migration in non-European/EU settings or that develop comparative analysis of regional migration governance.

Format: The final format of the workshop will depend on the number of participants. Authors of accepted papers may be asked to act as discussants.

Submission: The deadline for submissions is 18 January 2017. To submit a paper, please complete the form at:

Authors chosen to present papers will be notified by 24 February 2017 with a registration deadline for presenters of 17 March 2017.
