CFP: The diplomacy of migration: analysing external migration policies

21 December 2017

This is a call for proposals for one or two panels on the diplomacy of migration at the EISA 12th Pan-European Conference on International Relations (Prague, 12-15 September 2018).

The UN’s New York declaration for refugees and migrants, adopted on 19 September 2016, emphasised the need for international cooperation on migration between countries of origin or nationality, transit and destination, and strengthening the global governance of migration. However, states have vastly different migration histories and preferences, as well as capacity and willingness to engage with other states on migration. How does such international cooperation on migration then play out in practice? This is a particularly pertinent question given that the migration cooperation sought by some countries or regional organisations (such as Australia and the EU) with countries of origin or transit of migrants have been heavily criticised by human rights organisations.

Contributions may cover (but are not limited to) one or more of the following themes:

  • The content, context and effects of external migration policies
  • The politics and bureaucracy of external migration policies
  • Comparative case studies of migration in the diplomatic relations of one or more country-dyads
  • The diplomacy of migration within regional or international organisations
  • Conceptual or theoretical papers seeking to account for different patterns of external migration policies
  • Papers on methodological approaches for researching the diplomacy of migration

Papers on understudied countries/regions are particularly encouraged. Papers adopting any theoretical angle and methodological approach will be considered.

Interested authors are invited to submit their paper proposals, including: title (max. 20 words); an abstract of up to 250 words; 3-6 keywords; full names, affiliations and contact details; and a short biography of the presenting author (max. 100 words) by 25 January 2018. Please submit your proposal to Dr. Natasja Reslow at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Successful applicants will be informed by 31 January 2018.

The call is available at this link

Deadline for paper proposals: 25 January 2018

Notification of successful applicants: 31 January 2018
