The Oxford Migration Studies Society Conference
The Oxford Migration Studies Society 1st Annual Conference to be held Saturday, 4 May 2013, provides an interdisciplinary forum that hopes to connect scholars and practitioners with an interest in migration from around the world. This year’s conference, themed ‘Theory and Practice’, will explore different approaches to understanding migration as a fundamental part of today’s world, highlight the way practice can inform theory, and discuss how academic theory can be used in real-world situations to understand the importance of migration for all involved.
The conference is sponsored by the ESRC Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS), TheInternational Migration Institute (IMI), the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC), the Oxford Department of International Development (ODID), the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography (SAME), and the Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR).
