Immigrants and Civil Society

Call for Workshop Proposals


16th Nordic Migration Research Conference & 9th ETMU Days

13-15 August 2012
University of Turku, Finland

The focus of much research of immigrants in the Nordic countries has
been on the economic circumstances and state policies regarding
migration and integration. Far less attention has been devoted to the
role of the institutions of civil society in facilitating or impeding
the incorporation of newcomers into Nordic societies. The theme of
this conference is intended to be a response to that imbalance in
research priorities.

The conference organizers are particularly interested in workshop
proposals that address issues related to the incorporation of
newcomers into receiving societies in the developed world, with
special emphasis on the Nordic countries, and on issues related to
fair means of inclusion. These topics are broad and can be approached
from a variety of thematic and methodological perspectives.
Furthermore, the conference also welcomes all proposals within the
broader field of ethnic and migration studies. The conference
language is English.

The confirmed keynote speakers of the conference are Professor
Jeffrey Alexander (Yale University, USA), Dr. Phillip Connor (Pew
Research Institute, USA), Professor Leo Lucassen (Leiden University,
the Netherlands), Professor Carl-Ulrik Schierup (Linköping
University, Sweden), Dr. Marja Tiilikainen (University of Helsinki,
Finland), and Dr. Salla Tuori (Åbo Akademi University, Finland).

The closing date for workshop proposals is 15 December 2011.
Acceptances of workshop proposals will be announced on 15 January
