CONF : Séminaire “The Coloniality of Migration” — Mercredi 20 janvier 2021, 17h, en ligne

The Seminar Series on Forced Migration is part of Europe-​Asia Research Platform on Forced Migration at the Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen (IWM) and Mahanirban Calcutta Research Group (CRG); and is hosted at the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Vienna.

Europe-​Asia Research Platform on Forced Migration advances the coop­er­a­tion between European and South Asian insti­tu­tions and acad­e­mics while working toward creating a joint research plat­form for inno­v­a­tive knowl­edge produc­tion on forced migra­tion and border regimes. Bringing together scholars, policy makers and prac­ti­tioners from different disci­plines and regions, the Seminar Series aspires to decen­tering Europe-​focused schol­ar­ship, debates, and poli­cies on forced migration.

The Seminar Series, as part of Europe-​Asia Research Platform on Forced Migration, bene­fits from the research plat­form The Challenge of Urban Futures at the University of Vienna and Cities and Human Mobility Collaborative at the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility at the New School for Social Research.

The Seminar Series brings speakers from different disci­plines to discuss topics ranging from changing regimes and forms of gover­nance of migrants/​refugees ; the soli­darity networks and demands for social justice as entan­gled with increasing inequal­i­ties, austerity poli­tics, and racism ; the insti­tu­tional compo­nents regu­lating and managing different forms of displace­ment ; incor­po­ra­tion and exclu­sion of refugees and migrants from labor markets and protec­tion regimes along the lines of gender, race, reli­gion, and work.
