From source to destination: new challenges of migration in Central and Eastern Europe

Timişoara, 11th– 12thof September 2018


Organizers: RoMig – The Romanian Network for Migration Studies, Faculty of Sociology and Psychology and Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, West University of Timişoara


Over the last decades, Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries have been particularly affected by migration. Their recent history as emigration countries passed through different stages, from sources of mass emigration in some cases to cases of return, transit, and immigration. These rapid and complex developments unveil the CEE countries as new strategic research sitesas source, transit, and destination countries, where current critical questions related to migration can be asked anew. Our aim in this context is to explore this current status and migratory developments in comparative perspective.

Academics, students and practitioners working in the field of migration and social integration are encouraged to submit papers on topics such as: Migration and social change; Migration and development; Diasporas and remittances; Migration and transnationalism in CEE countries; Migration and family; Migration policies and institutional practices in new countries of destination; Return and circularity in the Eastern European migration; Immigration and immigrants’ integration in the “New Europe”; The link between internal and external migration, Data sources and their uses in the study of migration; Migration, employment and labour markets in developing countries; refugees in the Central and Eastern Europe, etc.

Abstracts no longer than 250 words should be submitted online at: no later than the 15th of June.

We will be able to accept up to 40 proposals. Acceptance decisions will be communicated before the 30th of June.

There are no registration or participation fees. Organizers do not cover transport, housing or meals.
