Maastricht, Friday 22 September 2023
Call for Proposals

This year, the Maastricht Centre for Citizenship, Migration and Development (MACIMIDE) celebrates its 10th Anniversary on the occasion of its Annual Work Conference, 22 September 2023. MACIMIDE is Maastricht University’s interdisciplinary research center for interfaculty collaboration in the fields of migration, mobility, citizenship, development, and family life. Each year MACIMIDE organizes an Annual Work Conference where researchers present and discuss their work around diverse research themes cutting across the disciplinary fields represented by the faculties and schools of Maastricht University.

For the 10th MACIMIDE Annual Work Conference, we invite proposals for individual paper presentations, themed panels and workshops that address various issues regarding migration. Examples from previous years include matters of education, transnationalism, return, welfare, labour market, citizenship, health, well-being, technological change and security, discrimination, identity and inclusion. While all topics and approaches are welcome, in the spirit of MACIMIDE’s 10th Anniversary, we particularly welcome paper, panel and workshop proposals that reflect on developments in the field in the last decade or enable explicitly interdisciplinary/interfaculty exchanges.

Proposals should be max. 500 words. Individual papers will be grouped into panels for the conference. Workshops should last 60-90 minutes and present or enable exchanges on innovative or creative research methods, approaches or themes.

Please submit your abstract by May 7 via this Qualtrics form:
You will be notified about the outcome by the end of May.

Participation in the conference is free, but you need to register in advance (and arrange for your own accommodation, if necessary). The deadline for registration is September 9. Registration will be opened in June.
