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.
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.
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.
