Call for Papers for Young Scholars & Early Career Academics (MiReKoc 15 Year Anniversary Conference) - Koç University, Istanbul

18 June 2019

MiReKoc 15 Year Anniversary Conference
October 24-25, 2019
Koc University, Istanbul
Deadline for Abstracts June 19, 2019

The global migration research agenda mainly focuses on migration from states in the ‘Global South’ to the ‘Global North’, although much migration occurs among countries within the ‘Global South’. Migrants and refugees within the ‘Global South’ migrate to neighboring states or far beyond seeking refuge, as skilled or unskilled labor, entrepreneurs among others. Simultaneously, citizens from the ‘Global North’ migrate to the ‘Global South’ for work, retirement or as a lifestyle choice. Migration to, through and among countries within the ‘Global South’ may involve multiple trajectories, transit spaces or destinations as migratory policies change, or economies fluctuate. Providing a space for discussion, we call upon researchers to reflect on migratory practices, experiences of displacement and forced migration in the ‘Global South’.

Celebrating the 15th anniversary of the founding of MiReKoc, this conference builds on existing scholarship and engagement focused on migration in the ‘Global South’. We anticipate submissions focusing on migration contexts and questions of the ‘Global South’.
