Migrations and new local governance

Migrinter research lab at the University of Poitiers, in cooperation with the Integrim program – Marie Curie Actions, and Mobglob, invite scholars working on international migrations and local governance in the Global North and the Global South to share their on-going research works during the workshop “Migrations and new local governance” on 10 and 11 December 2015 in Poitiers (France). This call addresses scholars as well as early-stage researchers and Phd students from all fields (geography, sociology, anthropology, political sciences, demography and more).

We invite scholars in the North and in the South to present their work to better understand:

1) Immigration management in a context of decentralisation

2) Immigration, diversity and multiculturalism promotion as a lever for economic development in host cities

3) And finally, the transnational logics of local government in sending countries through transnational actors in order to mobilise new resources.
