Register for the Pufendorf IAS Symposium on Migration
Migration increasingly becomes a prominent topic dominating public debates and political discourses. These discourses are also shaped by the unspoken norms of conventional migration research such as nation-state based analysis and sedentarism which fail to imagine migration as part of a social transformation.
How does migration come about in political arenas and policy discourses? What social transformations take place in the age of migration? The symposium explores variety of social and political change in the age of migration by discussing boundaries of welfare state, cosmopolitanism, climate change and displacement by highlighting the transformative nature of migration in order to facilitate discussions on the complexity, interconnectedness as well as political, economic and societal change it poses on our societies.
