Successful first edition PhD Workshop

The PhD Workshop during the IMISCOE annual conference in Geneva was well received by participants. It offered a good opportunity to actively engage with peers and experts in the network.

After an inspiring key note speech by Zana Vathi (Edge Hill University) reflecting on PhD and academic life, the participants split up in small groups to follow masterclass sessions and participate in the paper sessions on e.g. Migrant Political Participation and Mixed Methodologies hosted by Maarten Vink and Costica Dumbrava (Maastricht University), Janine Dahinden (Université de Neuchâtel), Russell King (University of Sussex) and Blanca Garcés Mascareñas (Universitat Pompeu Fabra).  The day was concluded with a plenary session on the future plans for the IMISCOE PhD network and next year’s conference and PhD Workshop in Prague. 

Organization team of IMISCOE PhD workshop: Liudmila Kopecka (Faculty of Humanities, Charles University in Prague), Ilona Van Breugel (Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Rotterdam) and Mark van Ostaijen (Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Rotterdam).
