Workshop "Changing Patterns of Migration – Changing Patterns of Social Inequalities? Borders and Boundaries in the Enlarged Europe". Date: 12-13.04.2012. Site: Bielefeld, Germany. Deadline: 30.12.2011


Organiser: Universität Bielefeld, Zentrum für Deutschland und Europastudien (ZDES), Institut für Weltgesellschaft (IW), Transnational Relations/COMCAD

Topics: This workshop addresses the transformation and new quality of migration between Eastern and Western Europe.

By bringing together sociologists, social anthropologists, political scientists and economists, the following topics (among others) will be addressed:

1. In which ways do new types of migration/mobility transform patterns of social inequality in sending and receiving countries?

2. How does the relation between the territorial borders and social  boundaries  change  in  the  course  of  new  migration dynamics?

3. Do  new  types of migration promote  the emergence  of  new  social  spaces,  such  as  transnational  labour  markets,  cross-border  fields  of  care  and
transnational scientific communities? If yes, what kind of social stratifications come into being within these new transnational spaces?

4. In which manner do formal institutional arrangements, such as welfare, migration, care and gender regimes intersect with informal practices of migrants? Under what conditions do these interrelations result  in  privileging  or  depriving  particular  groups? 

Insights  from  current  empirical  research  addressing  the following topics (among others) are highly welcome: Transformation of territorial borders and social boundaries in Europe; Inequality and/of geographic mobility; Transnational labour markets; Cross-border fields of care services; Migration and transformation of welfare, Cross-border circulation of talents.
