DAMR Call for Proposals: (Online) DAMR Phd Event

DAMR seeks to actively engage with PhD researchers working on migration issues. For this aim, the DAMR gives young researchers the opportunity to organize academic events. The proposed events can be workshops, panel debates, or other innovative events that bring together academic researchers and/or engage with a wider audience. The focus of the event can be on a wide range of issues related to migration debates around the world, and relate to different dimensions of the phenomenon. However, activities that have an interdisciplinary approach and involve members from various institutions are particularly encouraged. As the pandemic is still unfolding and traditional, offline events therefore might not be possible, DAMR is committed to facilitate dialogue and assist in setting up online exchanges. Therefore, this year’s PhD Event call includes opportunities for those who wish to organize workshops, seminars or other academic events online, and if possible offline.

DAMR can contribute towards the costs of organizing an event up to a maximum of 500€ per event, depending on the proposed event budget and within the limits of the available funds. The DAMR Secretariat is also available to assist you with organizing the event online.

If you are interested in organizing an event, submit your proposal of max. 2 pages specifying the following: Names and affiliations of workshop coordinators; Title and abstract of the proposed workshop; Provisional event type and details (sessions, participants, proposed invited guests); Draft budget

For examples of previous events which DAMR has funded, please visit our website: www.damr.euand see the recent reports of the two DAMR events funded in 2019: ‘Externalization of Migration Management’ and ‘Migrant Subjectivity and Agency’.

The complete proposals should be sent to Laura Cleton (laura.cleton@uantwerpen.be) by 14 October 2020.
