This workshop focuses on recent demographic developments and trends in international migration in the European region. We focus specifically on the way policies have tried to counter or strengthen these developments with national and European policy-making. The workshop intends to stimulate an interdisciplinary reflection on these developments, their causes and future implications. We welcome contributions from various disciplines such as history, political sciences, economics, sociology and demography.
Papers may address any of the following subtopics:
1. Social Policy, Migration and a New Population Equilibrium: The Case of North-West Europe
2. Political Change, Economic Challenges and Population Decline : The Case of Eastern Europe
3. Societal Change, Political Revolution and the Aspirations of a Booming Young Population: The Case of the Middle East
4. International Migration: Ethical and Political Challenges for Europe
The deadline for submitting your application is 15 January 2012. Candidates should send in the completed submission form, accompanied by a short academic curriculum vitae and an outline of the proposed paper. The selection of participants will be communicated by the beginning of February 2012.
