CfP: MACIMIDE Annual Work Conference 2022

The Maastricht Centre for Citizenship, Migration and Development (MACIMIDE) invites you to submit a proposal for a workshop or paper for the MACIMIDE Annual Work Conference 2022. MACIMIDE is Maastricht University’s interdisciplinary research platform 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 a number of research themes cutting across the disciplinary fields represented by the faculties and schools of Maastricht University.

You are welcome to submit an abstract for a workshop or paper of maximum 500 words to the Annual MACIMIDE Conference. Note that, as in previous years, we do not only accept paper proposals but also proposals for innovative and creative workshop of about 60 – 90 minutes. We invite contributions that address various issues regarding migration. Examples from previous years included papers and workshops on matters of education, identity and inclusion, welfare, labour market, citizenship, discrimination, transnationalism, health, well-being, technological change or security. This year, we especially invite papers or workshops focusing on Ukraine’s migration and displacement situation.

Please submit your abstract no later than June 3 by e-mail to all the members of the organizing committee. By mid-June all applicants will be notified on whether their proposal is accepted.

Participation in the conference is free of charge, but you need to register in advance. The deadline for registration is September 9. Registration will be opened in June.
