Changing Europe - Changing Migration: Europe in the World on the Move

20-25 January 2014

Antwerp, Belgium | Centre for Migration and Intercultural Studies


The IMISCOE 3CI PhD Conference track follows a three-year programme organised by a network of the Centre for Migration and Intercultural Studies (CeMIS) of the University of Antwerp, the Centre for Ethnic and Migration Studies (CEDEM) of the University of Liège and the Erasmus University research group Citizenship, Migration & the City (CIMIC) with financial support of the International Migration, Integration and Social Cohesion (IMISCOE) Research Network.

The 3CI PhD Conference includes 5 days of intensive interdisciplinary training by internationally recognised scholars for 30 selected PhD students to support them with content, methodologies and critical perspectives to conduct their research. The general focus is on the dynamic interplay between fundamental changes on global/European level (economic, political, cultural, social and juridical) and migration and integration mechanisms.

The January 2014 (January 20thto 25th) edition is hosted by CeMIS and focusses on Europe in the World on the Move. How do the recent economic and political changes in Europe affect migration flows within and to Europe and the perceptions of Europe in the world. The latter plays an essential role in the decision-making of migrants. Also the ways in which governments at both European and national levels respond to this changing reality trough migration policies lie within the scope of the conference.
