We invite PhD Research students to submit papers for the second Colloquium on Conceptual and Methodological Issues in Migration: “Migration, Mobility and Inequalities.”

Join experts from the Centre for Migration Studies, UEA Migration Network and the Sussex Centre for Migration Research for a one-day colloquium to explore issues on migration, mobility, and inequalities and, to discuss it in relation to longer-term impacts of immigration on sending, transit, and receiving societies. Much of the most exciting research in these fields is being conducted by emerging postgraduate scholars. Recognising this, our three research centres are collaborating to bring together postgraduate students across the UK and beyond to a colloquium on migration and inequalities.

We invite both PhD research students from both inside and outside the Essex community, to present their work to other postgraduate students and senior researchers from various universities in a stimulating academic environment. This colloquium will serve as a creative forum for academic exchange on contemporary challenges facing migration studies. We welcome research projects from all disciplines and using a variety of methodologies. 

The day will consist of different panels of 3 presentations (15 minutes each), as well as a keynote lecture by Professor David Voas from University College London.

Book your place now to ensure you don't miss out on this creative forum of expertise for PhD research students.
