"Contemporary Challenges in Return Migration: In Theory and Practise"
Consideration will be given to contributions analysing the extent to which pre- and post-return conditions have impacted on returnees’ patterns of reintegration and preparation for return. The point is to highlight the factors which have contributed to or hampered the ability of migrants to secure their return prospects. This approach applies equally to migrants who individually decided to return to their country of origin and to those who were forced to by the authorities of their destination country.
Contributions from various disciplines (anthropology, demography, economics, geography, law, political science, and sociology) are invited. While preference will be given to contributions dealing with countries in the Euro-Mediterranean area and Africa, comparative approaches spanning other continents may be accepted.
Contributors should submit their abstracts in English of no more than 300 words to the editor by 15 December 2006. For further information, please contact the editor (see contact information).
