Aihe: Immigrants and Civil Society, NMR/ETMU Conference, 13-15 Aug. 2012, Turku - Program available


16th Nordic Migration Research Conference & 9th ETMU Days

13-15 August 2012

University of Turku, Finland (Educarium)

The full program for the 16th Nordic Migration Research Conference & 9th ETMU Days is now available online at http://www.etmu.fi/etmudays/nmrc2012/program.html.

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.

Confirmed keynote speakers include:

* 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
* Dr. Salla Tuori, Åbo Akademi University, Finland
