Forced migration is a chronic reality and a pending threat in some parts 
of the so called Global South and is set to become increasingly central 
for rich industrial nations too in the 21st century due to growing 
political and environmental instabilities. Forced migration studies have 
already made a significant contribution in understanding a complex 
phenomenon that demands ever more sophisticated transnational, 
interdisciplinary and theoretically oriented analytical perspectives. 
But, as Stephen Castles (2003) has noted, the policy driven agenda of 
forced migration studies still has to make explicit such demands and 
contribute more substantially to social theory.

‘Critical mobilities’ is a new direction in social theory with also 
clear post-disciplinary and global aspirations. The analytical potential 
of its post-disciplinary outlook is already evident in recent works of 
synthesis that have fruitfully brought together studies on migration, 
tourism, business travel, social mobility, inequality, urban 
infrastructure, complexity and reflexive modernization (Canzler et al. 
2008; Urry 2000, 2008). ‘Critical mobilities’ is a distinct if 
eclectical approach with moving boundaries. Yet, its development as a 
cosmopolitan perspective (Beck, 2006) still awaits new synthesis that 
incorporates forms of mobility, bodies of research, problematics, and 
social and political contexts that are relevant beyond North Atlantic 
rim societies.

This workshop therefore seeks to contribute to ongoing efforts to expand 
the social-theoretical basis of forced migration studies and 
cosmopolitan outlook of mobilities research by encouraging a dialogue 
between both bodies of research. A focus on forced migration promises to 
make more explicit and further develop the critical outlook of 
mobilities research, offering one way in which the approach can begin to 
fulfil is cosmopolitan aspirations. Moreover, the methodological and 
conceptual frameworks being developed by mobilities research can 
illuminate new areas of concern facing forced migrants, especially 
regarding the relationship between diverse forms of mobilities and 
social and infrastructural networks; different forms of state power and 
the role that mobilities play in governance; infrastructural resilience 
and collapse; the convergence of physical and digital space; global 
complexities; and senses of place and belonging.
