"Comparing and Combining Disciplinary Approaches to Migration Issues : The Perspectives of Law and Social" Sciences 28-30 june 2018, Campus Saint Jean d'Angely

Retrouvez ci-dessous le programme du colloque international : "Comparing and Combining Disciplinary Approaches to Migration Issues : The Perspectives of Law and Social Sciences", qui se déroulera du 28 au 30 juin prochain, à la MSHS Sud-Est.

Cet événement, co-organisé par le LADIE, l’ERMES et l’URMIS, est financé par l'Académie 5 de l’IDEX. Il s'inscrit dans le cadre de l'axe 3 de la MSHS et préfigure le lancement du Master Migration Studies.

This international conference aims to initiate a dialogue between disciplines in the field of migration studies, by sharing and comparing approaches from sociology, political science and law. Although these disciplines commonly draw on the same concepts, they are often used in different ways or to refer to different phenomena.
The conference is an opportunity to discuss discordances, divergences and similarities between disciplinary approaches to migration and integration issues.
The objective is not only to critically compare disciplinary perspectives but also to examine whether (and how) they can be combined to create a renewed interdisciplinary approach to these issues.
The conference will more specifically address three topics at the heart of migration studies : the construction and transformation of borders and boundaries ; the categorizations and figures of the migrant ; issues of ‘integration’ and ‘assimilation’.
