Call for Chapters: Racialization, Racism and anti-Racism in the Nordic Countries

Call for chapter manuscripts

Racialization, Racism and anti-Racism in the Nordic Countries

In this publication we call on contributions that address the issues of racism and related phenomena; seek grounds for a new strong book on “Racialization, Racism and Anti-Racism in the Nordic Countries”, through a comprehensive effort to dig deep into the cumulated academic experiences and the analytic approaches in order to come to grips with the discrimination, racialization, racism (including Islamophobia), anti-racism, inclusion and exclusion of especially non-Western minorities in the Nordic countries.

Full call for manuscripts to the book Racialization, Racism and anti-Racism in the Nordic countries

Please send your title, abstract, affiliation and contact information before 15 May 2015 via 
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rrarbook2015

Full manuscripts will be circulated for a round of discussions. Deadline is 1 October 2015. Final submission deadline 1 January 2016. 
We plan on doing a feed-back seminar in the fall in Finland and/or hold electronic seminars following the template of already well-established media network.

Norsk Nettverk for Migrasjonsforksning Annual seminar 3. December

INTERNE GRENSER: NYE FORMER FOR MIGRASJONSKONTROLL I NORGE

Onsdag 3. desember 14:00-16:00

Litteraturhuset i Oslo, Wergeland-salen

Migrasjonskontrollen i Norge tar stadig nye former. Tradisjonelt har kontrollen av utlendinger foregått ved landets grensestasjoner, men det skjer nå en glidning mot at nasjonalstatens utside blir ivaretatt ved hjelp av nye former for kontroll innenfor landets grenser. Strafferettslige virkemidler og ulike tiltak som oppleves som straff, benyttes i økende grad som en del av utlendingskontrollen og fører til uklare grenser mellom migrasjon og kriminalitet.

I dette seminaret setter Norsk Nettverk for Migrasjonsforskning fokus på den pågående desentraliseringen av norsk grensekontroll, fra den tradisjonelle grenseposten til fortau, leiligheter og legekontor rundt omkring i landet. Vi ønsker forskere, byråkrater, studenter og andre migrasjonsinteresserte velkommen til orientering og debatt om norske myndigheters håndheving av utlendingsloven innenfor landets grenser

Conference: Migration to Norway: Flows and regulation

Institute for Social Research, Munthesgate 31, Oslo

23 October 2014, 9:00-16:00

Since 2011, the Institute for Social Research has led a multi-disciplinary research project on the interaction between migration flows and regulations. Collaborating with researchers from the Faculty of Law at the University of Bergen, the project has studied the impact of asylum policies, the impact of recent developments in national and international law, secondary migration in Europe and national differences in the regulation of family migration.

The project is wrapping up this fall, and we invite you to come and hear about the findings of this large research project. We will present findings from the project’s four modules, with commentary provided by cuttinge-edge researchers in our field.
