Migration research and contestations over migration: Conceptual approaches, ethics and communication

Migration research globally takes place within a societal climate where contestations over migration are substantial. In this course, we offer participants introduction to key themes in contemporary migration research, and demonstrate how these speak to or intersect with prevailing contestations over migration, at societal, family and individual levels, in Europe and globally. We will also explore what roles migration research can play to inform debates, contribute research-based perspectives, and engage with contestations over migration in varying ways. 

Application deadline: 31 July 2019.

The application form is now closed, and no more applications will be accepted. The selection of participants will be announced over email three weeks after the deadline.
