Poland: International Conference on Integration of Migrant Children

04/12/2020 - 05/12/2020

This specific title of this conference is 'Local Dimension of Children’s Migrations and its Impact on EU Integration Policy'. It is the second international conference organised as part of the MiCREATE project in Poland.

The conference will be divided into seven thematic panels, considering the following issues:

  • Integration problems and challenges from migrant children’s perspectives;
  • Best practices in the integration and education of migrant children;
  • The impact of COVID-19 national and supranational restrictions on the education of migrant children;
  • The well-being and social situation of refugee children and children seeking asylum.

Focus will be upon child-centered approaches in recent migration studies and innovations in education that can stimulate the effective integration of migrant children or children in transition, including distance learning (in the context of a pandemic) and ways to adapt children to a new environment. 

The conference will be held in English. Participants will receive a Zoom link after registration (register here).

18th IMISCOE Annual Conference 2021: Crossing borders, connecting cultures

18th IMISCOE Annual Conference 2021: Crossing borders, connecting cultures

07/07/2021 - 09/07/2021

The research network IMISCOE (International Migration, Integration and Social Cohesion in Europe) which describes itself as "Europe's largest interdisciplinary research network in the field of migration, integration and diversity studies" will hold its annual conference for 2021 on 7-9 July 2021 in Luxembourg.

"Crossing borders, connecting cultures"

The conference proposes to "zoom deeper into people’s migration experiences by foregrounding how migration is connected to culture”. IMISCOE will explore the nexus of migration and culture in more depth by reflecting on how migration is lived, experienced, mediated and reflected through everyday cultural and artistic practice. Thereby it will seek to deepen understanding of the complexity and diversity of migration experiences on the one hand, and the possibilities of connecting different migrant experiences and groups of people on the other.

The IMISCOE research network currently consists of 55 research institutes from almost all European countries and from various disciplines, including sociology, political science, economics, law, demography, public administration, social geography and history.

More information about the conference can be found on their website.
