PhD Workshop on International Migration and Human Rights

This November 14-15th, the Doctoral Student Forum of Uppsala Forum organizes a workshop on international migration and human rights.

About the Workshop

Immigration continues to be at the forefront of public debates in Europe even several years after the latest peak in cross-border movement. Initial concerns about passport control at ports of entry have evolved into broader discussions encompassing questions around both the well-being and integration of immigrants.

The aim of this two-day workshop is to inspire innovative contributions to this debate by bringing together early-career researchers from different disciplines, universities and research institutes. Participants are encouraged to develop new ideas and to explore the wider potential that collaboration can bring to their work.

The workshop will take place at the Department of Government, Uppsala University. It will be grouped in thematic sessions that reach beyond the boundaries of a single subject. Each participant will be given 45 minutes in total, 25 minutes for presentation and 20 minutes for discussion. Each session will have two assigned commentators from the pool of participants.

All PhD students as well as post-doctoral researchers from Uppsala University and beyond are invited to present their academic work on any aspect of international migration and human rights. We especially welcome aspiring experts in the fields of history, law, linguistics, peace and conflict studies, philosophy and political science.

The workshop is free of charge, lunch and dinner will also be provided.

Contact and application

The workshop will take place on November 14-15 2019, at the Department of Government, Uppsala University. The deadline for submitting an abstract (max. 300 words) is June 23, 2019.
