Call for Papers. Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Discrimination in the Context of Migration and Mobility.
Two-day conference to be held in Neuchatel, 23–24 March 2017
The notion of discrimination is widely discussed in the context of migration and mobility. However, definitions and understandings of discrimination vary as do methods used to identify or measure discrimination. While legal scholars draw on narrow definitions social scientists or economists tend to employ a broader understanding of discrimination. Varying meanings and applications of the term discrimination can lead to misunderstandings and parallel debates.
