Transatlantic Studies Association Annual Conference, 7-10 July 2008 Dundee University, West Park Conference Centre
Organized by Dr. Jerome B. Elie and Prof. Jussi Hanhimäki, Programme for the Study of Global Migration (PSGM) at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva
Since 1945, in the context of increasing globalization, migration phenomena have played an important role in national as well as international politics. Immigration and emigration have obviously reshaped many regions of the world, influencing the history of most countries. This panel proposes to address the transatlantic connection as regards the impact of migration on national history but also as regards the development of international and/or regional norms and policies designed to address these issues.
Ideally, papers should bring or allow for comparative approaches and emphasise cooperation and/or conflicts between Europe and America in developing policies or in dealing with particular migration issues such as illegal migration; forced migration and refugees; the migration/security nexus; and policies towards international organizations such as IOM and UNHCR. Population movements across the Atlantic and their impact on transatlantic relations are also topics of interest for this panel. Papers can address these themes from a historical and/or legal perspective, as well as from the standpoint of Political Science.
Proposals in a 300 word abstract and a brief CV should be submitted to Dr. Jérôme B. Elie (firstname.lastname@example.org) or to Prof. Alan P. Dobson (email@example.com).
DEADLINE for Submission of Proposals: 1 May 2008
