Rethinking EU Immigration: legal developments, management and practices
13 -14 March 2013 Bucharest, Romania
Organisers: Romanian Association for Health Promotion (ARPS) in partnership with SOROS Foundation Romania
Project: The Research and Information Centre on Immigrant Integration CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Is immigrant integration a key challenge for the EU states? How should governments address the European trends in Migration?
Immigration and integration are of high interest for political actors, academics, researchers and policy makers. With increasing migration to and within an already diverse European Union, the need for understanding and explaining the immigration process is urgent in order to identify the most appropriate integration frameworks. Viewed both as a challenge and as an opportunity, immigration cannot be efficiently managed without coherent integration measures.
We welcome inter-disciplinary approaches to migration dynamics and integration policies and contributions covering research actions, policy analyses, as well as good practice models in migration management.
The discussions may refer but are not limited to the following topics:
* Transnationalism, European identity and integration in Europe;
* Understanding the European integration modules;
* Challenges in measuring immigrant integration;
* Action research on migration;
* Legal perspectives on European immigration;
* The role of migration research centres in migration management;
* Migration and development.
