Dear past member of the PhD Network,

Within the newly-created page of the PhD Network on the new IMISCOE website, we have added a sub-section devoted to the "Past members" of the PhD Network. In our intention, this would be a page listing the names of past PhD Representatives and of all past members, and the year/years during which they have been members. The goal is to offer a clear recognition of the work of past members, as well as a "proof" to all of you to be able to demonstrate your involvement in the PhD Network, if need be.  

In my capacity as current PhD Representative, I am therefore writing you to notify you the publication of your name in the list. If you have created, or intend to create, your profile on the Migration Research Hub (, managed by IMISCOE, your name in the list will be clickable, opening the page of your profile on the Migration Research Hub. In order to confirm you agree, or in case you disagree, with publishing your name on the list, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. In case we will not receive any answer, we will proceed with the publication of your name as the default option.

Moreover, we would like to take this opportunity to ask whether you would like to keep in touch with the PhD Network, as an “alumnus”. We would like to be able to count in past members, e.g. to ask them to act as speakers/”mentors” for the future activities organized by the PhD Network (workshops at the IMISCOE Annual Conference, webinars…) – if you are interested in this, please drop me a line at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Please also consider whether you would like to contribute to the PhD Blog, which has now acquired considerable visibility on the renovated IMISCOE website (it is accessible both from the PhD Network webpage and from the button on the top left corner of the website banner’s “news + blog”).

We really hope you agree with the idea of creating a “Past members” section – and we hope you will want to see your name there!

All the best,
