Dear list members,
Please see our cfp below:


Call for abstracts for panel at the 17th IMISCOE Annual Conference in Luxembourg, June 30-July 2, 2020, for the IMISCOE Research Initiative Norms and Values in Migration and Integration (NoVaMI): Transmission, Transformation, Circulation



Transmissions, Transformations, and Circulations of Values in Migration and Integration

Questions of norms and values have become increasingly more salient over the last decade in political, and increasingly also a wide area of public, debates. While academic scholarship on legal norms and obligations with regard to refugee and migrant admission as well as the distribution of migrants and the rights and obligations of state vis-à-vis migrants is prolific, discussions on norms and values in other aspects of migration scholarship are only just emerging. This research initiative seeks to explore three interrelated fields of studies on norms and values when it comes to migration and integration: value transmissions, transformations, and circulations.

An increasing number of European states have become more explicit in the formulation of values and norms directed at newcomers through integration courses, but also by citizens’ support practices. This is part and parcel of the ‘civic turn’ that has received wide scholarly attention in the past decade (Joppke, 2007; Goodman, 2010). While the political dimension of such civic integration programs has been studied, there is a need for studies of other relevant aspects of this practice, such as the process from government commission to content provision at an administrative level to actual value transmissions by ‘street level’ course providers, along with studies on experiences and reflections on dilemmas encountered in this process.

When it comes to the question of value transformations, some scholars see values as something acquired through socialization (Janoschka & Haas 2013), whereas others argue that values can be transformed even at adult age (Roer, Strier & Rosenthal 2001). There has been a considerate amount of literature on value transmission in relation to social change, while, related to migration, these questions have largely been discussed through the notion of social remittances (Levitt 1998; Levitt & Lamba-Nieves 2011). By and large, the focus has arguably been more on the transmission between migrants and their families/sending contexts, while value transformations in regard to migrants themselves in receiving contexts has received less attention. In this research initiative, we understand migration as a transformative process (Märtsin & Mahmoud 2012), and take particular interest in how value transformation takes place as a result of migration.

Finally, we seek to explore the dynamics of value circulations. Since the large inflow of refugees in 2015, the role of civil initiatives has been widely acknowledged. While civil organizations are driven by norms and values in their acting, they also create a space in which values can circulate between the individuals encompassed in this space, amid obvious power relations (Graeber 2010; 2013; Tsing 2013). Contributions to this third point would thus explore these issues of value circulation as an economic practice of exchange across social power structures, such as class, ‘race’, and gender. In such a ‘market’ one might imagine the circulation of values as an instrumental practice that actors adhere to in order to obtain e.g. residence permits, in the case of migrants, or social status, in the case of activists.

We invite scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds to submit paper proposals exploring the panel themes – value transmissions, transformations, or circulations. Since the panel will be organized according to these themes, abstracts should indicate within which panel theme authors see their paper, as well as its methodology and conceptual framework.
