Migration Politics 2024 Call for Residential Fellows

The editorial team of the journal Migration Politics warmly welcome paper proposals for our 2024 authors’ fellowship in residence programme. We are seeking submissions from scholars conducting innovative and inspiring research on the politics involved in representing, controlling, and managing migration. Successful applicants will spend a one week intensive residence period at either the University of Glasgow or the University of Amsterdam to develop their ideas into a manuscript ready for submission. In the run-up to the residence, fellows will participate in virtual feedback sessions with the other upcoming fellows and expert discussants. The residency scheme covers a round trip to Glasgow or Amsterdam and one week accommodation for one person. The author residency programme is open to scholars with a PhD at all career stages as well as to PhD candidates.

Scholars taking part in the author residency programme are expected to submit their papers for review to the Migration Politics journal that offers rigorous, single-anonymised peer review and full open access without article processing charges (platinum open access).

For the 2024 residencies we are particularly – though by no means exclusively – interested in papers in the field of migration diplomacy, migration and foreign policy, as well as work focusing on the Middle East and North Africa, Latin-America, Asia or sub-Saharan Africa.

The next deadline for submissions is 15 November 2023 (16:59 CET). For further information, please see the Call in attachment, as well as the Frequently Asked Questions on our website.

In addition to this call for residential fellows, Migration Politics also invites proposals for Agenda-Setting Papers (where accepted authors participate in virtual residency – deadline: 31 January 2024). Please find the call for proposals of agenda-setting papers on our website.
