- Oxford Migration Studies Society
Human mobility is accompanied by processes of inclusion and exclusion. Whether in large-scale economic processes or face-to-face encounters, navigating ethnic, cultural, religious, economic, or linguistic differences resulting from migration and mobility can be challenging for states, societies, and individuals alike. What are the various scales and moments at which processes of inclusion and exclusion come to the fore? Who includes and who excludes? Where do processes of inclusion and exclusion take place? What effects do they have at the individual, regional, national or international levels?
This conference aims to generate new inter- and multi-disciplinary insights and ideas on the theme of inclusion/exclusion. The organizers invite abstracts from researchers at all academic levels addressing processes of inclusion/exclusion in relation to human migration and mobility from all disciplinary perspectives. Practitioners and policy-makers are welcome to submit their ideas, and contributions that feature applied or practical collaboration with groups or individuals outside of universities are particularly invited.
