Upcoming conference “Migration in a historical and contemporary perspective, similarities and differences in perception and reception of immigrants and emigrants” to be held May 19 – 21, 2015, at the Utzon Center, Aalborg.
This conference will analyse and discuss the importance of a number of factors found in different migration and integration processes, in different historical contexts; ie language, ethnic and social network, social background, the legal system, social rights, access to the labour market and geographic and cultural proximity. The main question is whether general patterns and aspects of migration and integration processes can be discovered in order to create a new and better understanding of the contemporary challenges regarding inclusion and exclusion of immigrants.
The conference is arranged by the MiCLU-project (Migration and inclusion), which is a collaboration between the Research Centre for Migration and Diversity (CoMID) at Aalborg University, the Danish Immigrant Museum, and the Danish Emigrations Archives.
The day before the conference (May 19, 2015) we host a PhD Course with the same title as the conference with a maximum of 12 participating Ph.D.-students. See the special point on Ph.D. course on the homepage for more information.
