Migration Working Group

Appadurai
 
The European University Institute’s Migration Working Group organises small thematic half-day workshops taking place once a month. Each workshop includes 5-6 paper presentations and significant time for discussion of the papers.

Topics to be tackled in these thematic workshops include (the list is indicative and not exhaustive):
European Migration Policy and Politics
Global Migration Governance: Challenges and Responses
Managing Cultural/Religious Diversity in and outside Europe
Radicalisation and International Terrorism
The Economics of Migration
Migration and Gender
The exact focus of each thematic session is defined on the basis of the paper proposals received and those eventually selected for presentation. The aim is to tackle important broad areas in the study of migrant integration/ethnic minorities and migration/asylum management and give especially young scholars and PhD Students the opportunity to present their cutting edge research. High quality papers presented at the MWG are then invited for publication as Working Papers in the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies/Global Governance Programme series.
