Venue Pałac Staszica, ul. Nowy Świat 72, Sala Okrągłego Stołu (nr 100), Warszawa, POLAND

During the conference, we will discuss various dimensions of the presence of Vietnamese migrant communities dispersed around the world. The origins of Vietnamese migrant communities living in various countries are differentiated, including the colonial history (France), flow of refugees after the end of Vietnamese War (United States, countries of Western Europe) and cooperation between communist government of Vietnam and other countries of Soviet Bloc (Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, former East Germany). Vietnamese migration involves more recent phenomenon of economic migration. Vietnamese residing in particular countries are a part of global Vietnamese diaspora, maintaining various ties with country of origin as well as other Vietnamese communities dispersed around the world. The connections maintained between the Vietnamese around the world and flow of cultural phenomena include multiple areas, such as business strategies, political activism and religious engagement. 

The conference is aimed to form a platform for the scholars investigating various aspect of presence of Vietnamese in Europe to share their research experience and enable the development of new concepts enabling to grasp the fluid nature of transnational flows.

Themes of the sessions:

 

  • Session 1 - Diaspora and politics
  • Session 2 - Economical dimensions of Vietnamese migration
  • Session 3 - Migration and social integration
