CFP: Youth Mobility and Migration in Europe – Keep on Moving?

02 August 2017

We would like to announce the opening of the call for papers for the H2020 MOVE-project conference on Youth Mobility in the EU in March 2018.

The three-day conference in Luxemburg offers a platform for exchange and discussion on youth mobility in Europe from different perspectives, reflecting the challenges, risks and benefits of youth mobility in Europe. It will present the results of the overall research project, look into strategies of mobility, the fostering and hindering factors of mobility, as well as positive and negative effects, and describe emerging patterns of mobility within the EU. Six main topic streams will guide the flow of the conference, to which a call of papers is opened as of now:

• Mobility Policies and Politics

• Mobility and Agency

• Social Inequality and Youth Mobility

• Regional Aspects of Mobility (focus on post-socialist countries)

• Economy and Youth Mobility

• Culture and Youth Mobility


The following experts will contribute to the conference by speaking on several varied and controversial topics:

Dr. Valentina Cuzzocrea, Youth and Mobility

Prof. Dr. Bridget Anderson, Youth migration and precarious employment of young people

Prof. Dr. Martin Kahanec, Economic perspective

Prof. Dr. Rubén Hernandez-Leon,  Cross border US/Mexico in comparison to third country immigration to the EU 

The audience will be varied and all people are invited to join the final conference. The final two-day conference will be a platform for scientific presentations on the topic streams mentioned above, and offer an international perspective on youth mobility. Part of the conference will also be a social events in Luxembourg, as well as a dinner with the conference members. Students will be offered a special, reduced price!
