Ageing Migrants


The scope of the Standing Committee (SC) ‘Ageing Migrants’ is to (1) discuss interdisciplinary and comparative questions regarding the topic of ageing migrants in European societies, (2) reinforce existing collaborations to promote further research and joint publications in this field, and (3) apply for further funding for both research and networking.

The SC ‘Ageing Migrants’ started its activity in 2010 through a workshop organised by Oana Ciobanu and Joana Lopes Martins at the IMISCOE Annual Conference in Liège. In 2011 we were constituted as a research initiative. Since then we have organised yearly sessions at the IMISCOE Annual Conferences. In addition, we have convened international workshops hosted by CesNova, the New University of Lisbon in 2012, 2013, 2014, one co-hosted by the University of Geneva and the University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland in March 2015, one hosted by the University of Neuchâtel in March 2016, and one in November 2016 hosted by the University of Mainz. The yearly workshops bring together senior and junior scholars, both SC-members and others interested in the SC’s activities, in order to exchange research findings and strengthen collaborations through joint publications and funding applications. Because of our constant activity we were granted standing committee status in 2014.

In addition to this, we have an e-mail list for disseminating information regarding publications, research funding and calls for papers. If you would like to join our mailing list, please contact Oana Ciobanu (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
