Nordic Migration Research (NMR) Conference 2014 – Call for papers

Flows, places and boundaries – migratory challenges and new agendas

Copenhagen University, 13th- 15th August, 2014

During the past decades, migratory flows have diversified and intensified. National policy frameworks respond to the migration flows with both openness and closure and discussions on how to manage migration are as pertinent as ever. Notions of integration and belonging are challenged by new migration dynamics and by new forms and scopes of mobility.

The global quest for natural resources has also opened up new venues for migration, e.g. in Greenland, and environmental changes and challenges have led to new population movements. These examples illustrate the complexity of migration-related issues and the 17th Nordic Migration Conference wishes to engage in these topics, and situate the migratory challenges and new agendas in a Nordic context.
