CfP: First Mid-Term Conference of the IMISCOE Migration Politics (MigPoG) Standing Committee (SC)

As a key member of the IMISCOE Migration Politics and Governance (MigPoG) Standing Committee (SC), the Migration Policy Centre will hold the First Mid-Term Conference on ‘Migration politics and governance: understanding the relationships’ on 26-27 March 2020 at the European University Institute in Florence.  

We encourage and welcome papers that address empirically and theoretically the link between migration politics and governance, including contributions:

• On different migration issues, e.g. immigration, emigration, border control, integration, asylum seekers and refugees etc.;

• Taking different methodological approaches, i.e. quantitative, qualitative, mix-methods;

• Adopting different disciplinary perspectives: political science, policy studies, electoral studies, political sociology, political psychology, geography, international relations, social movement studies etc.

• Considering different geographical areas, relations within regions and levels of government/governance. More specifically, we welcome papers paying attention to migration politics and policies elaborated 1) within the EU context in a global perspective, including the external dimension of European and national migration policies and politics, and the international mobilisation of local authorities; 2) beyond the EU, therefore developed at different territorial scales in receiving/transit countries and at a global and international level (e.g. multilateralism, international organisations etc.).

To propose a paper, please send an abstract by 29 November 2019, to Abstracts should be max. 500 words long and provide some specification of the paper’s theoretical and methodological approach as well as contribution to the literature.
