EuMIGS Lecture Series - Autumn 2022

01 November 2022

The EuMIGS Lecture Series - Autumn 2022 consists of eight lectures that focus on migration policy and refugee reception in the (trans-)local context.

Focusing on policies and practices of refugee reception in different national contexts in Europe from a comparative perspective, speakers of the lecture series will explore differences and similarities in refugee reception across Europe and interrogate how different welfare and citizenship regimes influence migration policy and reception practices.

On Monday, November 7th, at 12:15 (online) we will begin with two talks. Shannon Damery (University of Liege - CEDEM) will join Helen Schwenken (UOS - IMIS) to discuss the Belgian and German cases. The talks will be followed by a Q&A session.

The event is free and open to all.
