Call for Papers

Return and Onward Migration Workshop
School of Social and Political Studies, University of Edinburgh
9th-11th April 2008

Confirmed Speakers
Professor Alastair Ager, Dr Tim Allen, Professor Richard Black, Dr  
Dawn Chatty, Dr Stef Jansen, Dr Tania Kaiser, Professor Roger Zetter

Aims and Objectives
Migration studies has acquired a central position across the social  
sciences, with research focusing on forced displacement and voluntary  
migration, internal displacement, child migration, global labour  
flows and skilled migration. This workshop will interrogate return  
migration (back to source societies) and onward migration (to a third  
destination).

Return migration is often seen as an ideal in policy discussion  
regarding refugees, asylum seekers and migrants alike – the return of  
refugees after the end of conflict, the reversal of the ‘brain-drain’  
through the return of skilled professionals to developing countries,  
or the expulsion of unsuccessful asylum seekers and irregular  
migrants. Return migration that meets the basic criteria of not  
resulting in re-emigration may be considered ‘sustainable’ and  
therefore desirable from the perspective of host and home governments  
alike. From the perspective of returnees, however, return migration  
may itself imply ‘failure’. Moreover, resettlement and reintegration  
into the home society may be rife with difficulties especially when  
such societies have been transformed in the interim through war,  
political upheaval or economic crisis.

More than ten years on after the UNHCR’s decade of repatriation we  
have not witnessed a mass return of refugees. In fact, according to  
the UNHCR, there remain more than 38 protracted refugee situations  
affecting over 6.2 million people. Many will continue live  
permanently in their country of asylum, but others may resettle or be  
resettled in a third country. Such onward migration to a third  
destination (about which there is no comprehensive body of  
literature) similarly throws up multiple opportunities and obstacles  
in terms of legal documentation, access to resources, socio-economic  
wellbeing, socio-political integration, and the maintenance and  
dissolution of family life.

Call for Papers
We welcome abstracts of up to 250 words for papers from all relevant  
social science disciplines and with any geographical focus on the  
following suggested themes: In/voluntary repatriation; Return of  
repatriates; Resettlement policies; Un/official dispersal; Beyond  
‘the myth of return’; Migrant identities. Please send abstracts  
(including your name, email address, and institutional affiliation)  
by Friday 1st February 2008 to:
