Cities are often the main ports of entry for migration and the location where migration-related diversity is manifested most prominently. The 14th annual conference turns attention to the urban dimension of migration and migration-related diversity. The conference with the theme 'Migration, Diversity and the City' will take place in Rotterdam (June 28-30, 2017)
The IMISCOE Spring Conference will be held at Middlesex University London on 17 February 2017 on the Tyranny of Categories in Migration Policy, Research and Data Production. A number of writers have highlighted the ways in which categories form the backbone of policies through which they define the conditions of mobility and the concomitant set of entry, residence, economic and social rights as well orient research and data production.>>
IMISCOE encourages scholars from the network to explore new opportunities for research, collaboration and publications. Therefore, it provides seed funding to the development of new research (by developing research proposals), joint publications or other activities around specific topics or new niches of research. Existing successful research clusters and standing committees are also encouraged to apply if they can clearly identify why further support from IMISCOE is needed for new activities.>>
Standing Committees involve research clusters that have been established for a longer period of time, and have a broad programme of activities and a broad audience that they serve within IMISCOE.
Research Groups involve new research initiatives that focus on a very specific line of activity and a specific group of researchers geared to that.
Ageing migrants are a growing and diverse population throughout Europe and beyond. Research on this group, while still in its infancy, focuses on a variety of themes: care for and by, transnationalism, active ageing, intergenerational relations, return migration, health, well-being and vulnerability, rights and social policies, social networks, labour market participation, and much more.
The Standing Committee (SC) ‘Ageing Migrants’ brings together researchers from throughout Europe to advance the state-of-the-art in this topic, collaborate on research projects and publication, and apply jointly for funding.>>
