On January 24, 2020, the Standing Committee "Reflexive Migration Studies" will get together in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, for its kick-off meeting.

The SC's Board Members together with the initial supporters of the proposal will discuss the future work programme and set up a research and networking agenda for the upcoming 3 years. We will be happy to welcome interested scholars to our SC's activities in future events and activities, starting from the IMISCOE 2020 Conference in Luxembourg. Do not hesitate to contact us and/or to follow us on Twitter (@reflex_studies).
