Transnationalities in Migration and Mobility Research. Public Lecture Series of the nccr – on the move. Fall 2017.

The Fall 2017 Public Lecture Series investigates different manifestations of transnationality and their impact on regulation, labor markets and society. Three lectures will shed light on the dynamics of inclusion and exclusion resulting from growing transnational interrelations – focusing particularly on gendered migration regimes and policies, bordering practices, and persisting discriminations. Two lectures will deal with consequences, looking at the regulatory aspects of migration, or examining a transnational labor market in the making in the global NGO sector.

The 5th Public Lecture Series of the nccr – on the move will take place at the
University of Neuchâtel
