The Pufendorf IAS Symposium on Migration - MOVING AHEAD: EXPLORING SOCIAL TRANSFORMATIONS IN THE AGE OF MIGRATION

Migration symposium
Symposium
Migration has increasingly become 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 do migration come about in political arenas and policy discourses? What social transformations take place in the age of migration? The symposium explore 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 contextuality of the political, economic and societal changes it poses on our societies.

The Symposium is organised by the Pufendorf IAS Migration Initiative at Lund University.
