Aim of the Conference

The last fifteen years have witnessed dramatic changes in European international migration. New destinations, new regions of origin and new flows have emerged. Most of the traditional national migration models have proved to be inadequate. This has led to major changes in migration policies and new regulatory regimes have been implemented in most of the European countries. Political changes and ethnic conflicts in Central and Eastern Europe have affected the size and direction of European migration flows, while flows from non-European countries continue to account for a very sizeable component of migration in Europe. At the same time, increasingly restrictive immigration policies have invited larger flows of ’non-conventional’ and undocumented migrants. The European Union is becoming more closely involved in migration issues, and its enlargement will probably reinforce its role in making and implementing migration policies. This conference intends to address some of the emerging issues in European migration, focusing on new trends and methods of analysis. Specific consideration will be given to four research themes: the uses and limitations of special surveys in international migration studies, new forms of migration in Europe, the evolution of regional patterns of European international migration, and the problems of measuring the integration of migrants.- 

The conference is open to researchers worldwide but participation will be limited to 60-70. Papers will be selected by the steering committee. All the sessions will be plenary and the possibility of including a poster session will be considered. There will be no registration fee for the conference. Grants to cover travel and/or accommodation expenses of participants are not provided.-
