Norsk nettverk for migrasjonsforskning er et åpent forskernettverk som skal legge til rette for informasjonsutveksling for forskere og studenter på feltet.

Nettverket og denne webportalen skal synliggjøre norsk forskning for alle interesserte, både nordiske og internasjonale forskere på migrasjonsfeltet, studenter, offentlig sektor, næringsliv og for alle andre som er interessert i forskning og kunnskapsutvikling på feltet migrasjon.

Norsk nettverk for migrasjonsforskning er tilknyttet Nordic Migration Research som er en nordisk medlemsorganisasjon for forskere innen feltet. Migrasjonsforskning.no administreres av IMER/UiB og er nettverkets viktigste felles informasjonskanal.

The purpose of this conference is to contribute to knowledge development on migration and transnationalism by focusing on how transnational practices interact with different kinds of power relations. We particularly welcome papers based on empirical research that address and analyse practices of transnational migration and how these could be shaped by states and other powerful structures but also differently practised and experienced with regards to gender, class and generation.

The workshops will be organised under the following headings:
Workshop 1: Diasporic Connections within Disparities of Space, Time and Power
Workshop 2: State, policy and markets in a Transnational World

Date: 4-5 Nov. 2010

Seminar: Innvandring: hvor går grensen?

Om migrasjon, integrering og velferd i de nordiske landene

Finnes det en grense for hvor mange innvandrere det norske samfunn kan ta imot? Hvilke konsekvenser har innvandring utenfra Norden på velferdssystemet vårt? Fungerer integreringspolitikken? Hva er fremtidens utfordringer, og er dagens velferdsstat den beste løsningen?
Nordisk Ministerråd Oslo inviterer til nordisk erfarings- og innspillsseminar i anledning Regjeringens Velferds- og Migrasjonsutvalg (Brochmann-utvalget) om plikter og rettigheter i velferdssamfunnet.
Seminaret samler nordiske forskere og utredere, samt norske politikere innen innvandrings- og velferdspolitikken. I samtlige nordiske land pågår arbeid for å imøtekomme endringen i migrasjonens volum og innretning.

Dato: 7. september 2010, kl. 1700-1900
Sted: Wergeland, Litteraturhuset (Oslo)
Arrangør: Nordisk Ministerråd Oslo, i samarbeid med IMER Bergen, SSB, Nordic Migration Research, CULCOM/ALNA-prosjektet

NOFIK Årsmøte: DET ER TID FOR INTERKULTURELL KUNNSKAP OG DIALOG

NOFIK- Norsk forening for interkulturell kompetanse - er en interesseorganisasjon for å fremme interkulturell forståelse i Norge.

Et interimstyre ble nylig dannet for å samle fagfolk med ulike akademiske tilknytningspunkter til interkulturell kommunikasjon. Vi ønsker å fremme interesse for interkulturelle spørsmål og skape kunnskapsbaser for økt kunnskap og forståelse av kulturell diversitet og interkulturell dialog i Norge.

Gjennom konferanser og utveksling av medlemmenes faglige ressurser vil NOFIK bidra til å stimulere til interkulturelt samarbeid og på den måten øke kyndighet i interkulturell dialog i Norge.

Videre har NOFIK ambisjoner om å formidle internasjonal forskningsbasert kompetanse for å styrke inkludering, likebehandling og retten til å være annerledes. Vi ønsker å bidra til å utvikle utdanning for interkulturell forståelse, menneskerettigheter og demokratisk medborgerskap.

Både enkeltpersoner og organisasjoner, som interesserer seg for interkulturelle spørsmål, er velkommen til å bli medlemmer i NOFIK. Innmelding skjer ved å sende inn navn, adresse og fagtilknytning til NOFIKs nettsted: http://www.nofik.no/

Dato: 25. november kl. 12.30.
Sted: NOFIKs årsmøte arrangeres i forbindelse med årlige konferanse for Nordic Network for Intercultural Communication (NIC) ved Høgskolen i Oslo 25-27/11 i år. 

 


The Metropolic conference 2010 - Justice and Migration: Paradoxes of Belonging

The International Metropolis Project (www.metropolis.net) is a forum for bridging research, policy and practice on migration and diversity. The Project aims to enhance academic research capacity, encourage policy-relevant research on migration and diversity issues, and facilitate the use of that research by governments and non-governmental organizations. In the decade since its inception, the project has grown to include researchers, policy-makers, international organizations and non-governmental organizations from across North America and Europe as well as a growing presence in Africa, Latin America and much of the Asia-Pacific region. The 15th International Metropolis Conference 2010 is organized by the Municipality of The Hague, The Netherlands.


Time: 4-8 October 2010

Venue: The Hague World Forum, Churchillplein 10, 2508 EA The Hague, The Netherlands

15. Nordic Migration Research Conference. "GLOBAL CHALLENGES - LOCAL RESPONSES." Malmö, 25-27 August 2010

Migration is currently one of the most prominent political issues both at national and supranational levels, inviting reconsideration of policies and redefinition of social inclusion. Migration is also prominent in academic debates that cross disciplines and involve experiences and politics at local, regional, national and international levels. Migration affects local social processes and individual lives in ways that call for new perspectives and discussions of place, belonging and community-making. We invite scholars to present and discuss their research on the economic, political, social and cultural impacts of migration, with focus on Nordic countries in themselevs and in broader international comparisons. Results of empirical research engaging both qualitative and quantitative methods are welcome, as are critical examinations of concepts and methodologies.

Time: 25.-27 August 2010

Venue: Malmö University

International Conference on Climate Change and Human Mobility


Time: 12-14 April 2010
Venue: University of Copenhagen

With the current trends of climate change, new patterns of regional migration emerge in terms of a forced flight from flooded or dried up environments, and in terms of active, adaptive strategies. Clearly, whatever the cause of global climate change, the balance between the regions of the world, and between different groups of people within regions becomes destabilised. It is thus expedient to investigate the practices and wider implications of human mobility in recognition of the fact that environmental change has become a truly global issue. On the whole, the human and social sciences face a major conceptual challenge in scaling their object of study.

Papers that address one of the following session themes are invited:

- Environmental change and human migration: Conceptual and political
challenges. Keynote speaker: James Morrissey

- Social and environmental histories: Lessons of intertwinement.
Keynote speaker: Carole Crumley

- Societies on the move: Responses to new waterscapes.
Keynote speaker: Jon Barnett

- Representations of movements: Near or distant sites of attraction.
Keynote speaker: Ben Orlove
