On 27-28-29 August, the 11th IMISCOE annual conference will be held in Madrid (IUEM). The conference covers the topic ‘Immigration, Social Cohesion and Social Innovation’, featuring several high-level keynotes as well as almost 90 research panels and workshops.
The 11th IMISCOE Annual Conference will address the links between migration, social cohesion and social innovation. Immigrants in Europe have been seriously affected by the economic downturn. Rising unemployment has caused labour and income insecurity and led to long-term vulnerability. At the same time, public policies aimed at immigrant integration have undergone adjustment and faced budget constraints, and public debates revolving around their redefinition have questioned their effectiveness, management and scope. Together with the economic crisis, the resulting gap in service provision could threaten social cohesion. Within this context, social innovation can emerge as a potential solution to the pressing issues immigrants are confronted with.
Participants are kindly to register via the conference portal; deadline for registration is August 1st. As of July 1st, participants can also upload their papers via the conference portal.
