CALL FOR PAPERS – DAMR/IMES FALL MEETING
The Dutch Association for Migration Research (DAMR) invites paper abstracts for its Fall Meeting, co-hosted by the UvA Institute for Migration Studies (IMES):
Challenging Categorization in Migration Policy and Research
27 October 2017, Roeterseilandcampus, University of Amsterdam
On May 27th, the Dutch Association for Migration research organized a successful event on
(un)controlled migration”: border control and it’s implications in cooperation with the WODC at the Ministry of Security and Justice in the Hague. The meeting provided an opportunity for discussion between researchers and policy makers.
DAMR seeks to engage more actively with PhD researchers working on migration issues. For this aim, the DAMR board 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.
PhD Candidate Merve Burnazoglu (Utrecht University) won DAMR's 2016 call for event proposals and is now organizing a Workshop on Migration Identities and Measurement on 6 June 2017. Attendance is free of charge but registration is required. More information and the registration can be found here.
The fall 2016 DAMR-conference was devoted to research on Urban Refugees and took place on 18 November at Tilburg University and organised by Tesseltje de Lange or Lisa Berntsen. The first part of the conferences focused on urban migrants and informal practices.
