The Refugees, Borders and Membership Conference

Malmö University, October 24-26, 2018

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Malmö University and its recent inauguration as full university, Malmö Institute for Studies of Migration, Diversity and Welfare, MIM, is organizing a large international conference on the subject of refugees, borders and membership. The conference, which is free to attend, seeks to highlight the complex and evolving relation between refugee migration, the legal and socio-cultural borders between and within states and continents, and questions of membership and belonging.

Conference workshops

The conference includes two full days of in-depth workshops on different subjects related to the conference theme. Submission period for workshop proposal is now closed. Workshop submissions have included contributions from all disciplines, theoretical as well as empirical, normative as well as explanative, qualitative as well as quantitative, micro as well as macro. The organisers have encouraged contributions from scholars who do not necessarily think of themselves as migrationists, since there is the value in new and unconventional approaches to the development of migration research.
