CALL FOR PAPERS
Deadline: 1 March 2021
UNDERSTANDING VOLUNTARY AND FORCED MIGRATION
RESEARCH AND DATA NEEDS
To be held at the University of Lille, LEM (France)
17 May 2021
The aim of the conference is to bring together leading academic scientists and researchers, members of government institutions, members of international organizations and data producers to exchange their experiences and to share their research results on all aspects of voluntary and forced international migration. The conference also intends to detect the new needs in the field of the international migration analysis, to strengthen cooperation between participants and at the same time to reflect about the limits of current data used to study international migration and to discuss the different new data-gathering strategies.
The organizing committee invites the submission of high-quality academic papers that use different datasets (administrative, survey, experimental). Topics related to the voluntary and forced migration include, but are not limited to:
What drives mobility and the choice of migratory routes?
What influences the choice of the destination country?
What factors and policies influence socio-economic integration of migrants?
What shapes native attitudes towards migrants?
What is the difference between forced and voluntary migration?
What do we know about climate refugees?
Frederic Docquier (Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER), Luxembourg), “Economic effects of Covid-19 and International Migration”
Jean-Christophe Dumont (Head of the International Migration Division, Directorate for Employment, Labourand Social Affairs? OECD), “The Covid19 crisis effects on migration and migrants in OECD countries: challenges and opportunities”
A discussant will be assigned to each paper presented at the conference
