Call for Papers

IMMIGRANTS AND CIVIL SOCIETY

16th Nordic Migration Research Conference & 9th ETMU Days

13-15 August 2012

University of Turku, Finland

The focus of much research of immigrants in the Nordic countries has
been on the economic circumstances and state policies regarding
migration and integration. Far less attention has been devoted to the
role of the institutions of civil society in facilitating or impeding
the incorporation of newcomers into Nordic societies. The theme of this
conference is intended to be a response to that imbalance in research
priorities.

The conference organizers are inviting papers that address issues
related to the incorporation of newcomers into receiving societies in
the developed world, with special emphasis on the Nordic countries, and
on issues related to fair means of inclusion. These topics are broad and
can be approached from a variety of thematic and methodological
perspectives. Furthermore, the conference also welcomes all proposals
within the broader field of ethnic and migration studies. The conference
language is English.
