Migration and Mobility and its Relation to Social Transformation
The workshop investigates the Migration-Mobility Nexus to understand the deep transformations of Western Societies. Distinguished international scholars are invited to debate this question with the researchers of the nccr – on the move. On a theoretical level, speakers will question the concepts of migration and mobility, and their impact on the academic and public debate. Empirically, they will address the transformations of increasingly diverse societies, and their political, economic, legal, and societal consequences. The workshop takes a resolutely interdisciplinary perspective and is open to the wider public of the University of Neuchatel and beyond.
Please send an e-mail to Gina Fiore Walder to register for the public workshop. Deadline for registration is 21 November 2016.
