CfP: Crossing borders – Perspectives in Migration Research (University of Salzburg)

6th Biennial Conference on Migration and Integration Research in Austria

The Commission for Migration and Integration (KMI) and the Institute for Urban and Regional Research (ISR) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) as well as the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Vienna have been jointly hosting the Biennial Conference for Migration and Integration Research in Austria. For the first time, this conference will take place at the "Unipark" in Salzburg in 2020, in cooperation with the Paris Lodron University Salzburg, Austria.

Call for Panels and Papers

Numerous scholarly disciplines encounter each other within the field of Migration Research. Moreover, the theme of migration can be approached from at least three different perspectives: those of the host communities, of the societies of origin, and of the migrants themselves. Migrant researchers are challenged to integrate these perspectives into a coherent view, for instance that of transnationalism.


Conference date: 16-18 September 2020 
Location: University of Salzburg
Proposals may be submitted in English or German and are to reach the organisers by 27/1/2020
