Call for Proposals: (Online) PhD Event 2021/2022

DAMR seeks to actively engage with PhD researchers working on migration issues. For this aim, the DAMR gives young researchers the opportunity to organize academic events. The proposed events can be workshops, panel debates, or other innovative events that bring together academic researchers and/or engage with a wider audience. The focus of the event can be on a wide range of issues related to migration debates around the world, and relate to different dimensions of the phenomenon. However, activities that have an interdisciplinary approach and involve early career members from various institutions are particularly encouraged. As DAMR is committed to facilitating dialogue between academics, also during ever-changing conditions in the global pandemic, we accept proposals for organizing workshops, seminars, or other events online and/or offline.

DAMR can contribute towards the costs of organizing an event up to a maximum of 500€, depending on the proposed event budget and within the limits of the available funds. The DAMR secretariat is also available to assist you with promoting the event.

If you are interested in organizing an event, submit your proposal of max. 2 pages specifying the following: names and affiliations of event coordinators; the theme and the aim of the event, title and abstract of the proposed event; provisional event type and details (sessions, participants, proposed invited guests); draft budget.

For examples of previous events that DAMR has funded, please visit the RUNOMI website for the 2021 Virtual Conference ‘Mixing Methods in Migration Research,’ or check our website for reports of the 2019 events ‘Externalization of Migration Management’ and ‘Migrant Subjectivity and Agency.’

The complete proposals should be sent to Laura Cleton ( by 29 November 2021.
