"International migration has become a central topic in the public political debate in Europe and elsewhere. It is a critical policy domain for governments at all levels, as well as for both sending and receiving societies and it is an increasingly relevant phenomenon for the understanding of global dynamics and interactions. International cooperation in the field of migration and asylum is also attracting increasing amounts of resources and actors worldwide. As a consequence, more and more professionals and researchers are likely to engage in international migration issues as part of their work.

Interdisciplinary in nature, this 14th Migration Summer School provides an overview and critical discussion of key issues relating to the determinants, effects, and regulation of international migration. Examples of topics that will be explored during the two-week Summer School include: the motivations and decision-making processes of migrants; the role of states in regulating international migration; labour immigration policies and the rights of migrant workers; settlement and citizenship; human smuggling and trafficking; asylum and refugees including policy responses to the so-called “migration crisis” in recent years; challenges of integration, particularly in the EU; the role of media in migration debates; public attitudes to migration; migration and development and international governance mechanisms. The programme also includes a series of inter-active workshops that will allow participants to discuss concrete examples of migration-related policy questions, and to reflect on the various different methods for analysing migration and mobility (...)"

Germany’s Federal Foreign Office and the Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC) for IOM, the UN Migration Agency, launched in December 2017 the Migration Data Portal in Berlin. The Migration Data Portal brings together the key facts and figures about global migration trends in one place for the first time. The Portal aims to serve as a unique access point to timely, comprehensive migration statistics and reliable information about migration data globally.

The site is designed to help policy makers, national statistics officers, journalists and the general public interested in the field of migration to navigate the increasingly complex landscape of international migration data, currently scattered across different organisations and agencies. Especially in critical times, such as those faced today, it is essential to ensure that responses to migration are based on sound facts and accurate analysis. By making the evidence about migration issues accessible and easy to understand, the Portal aims to contribute to a more informed public debate.

The Portal is managed and developed by GMDAC, with the guidance of its Advisory Board, and was supported in its conception by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). The Portal is supported financially by the Governments of Germany, the United States of America and the UK Department for International Development (DFID).

The idea to develop such a portal was first discussed in 2015 during the final GFMD Summit in Istanbul as well as in 2016, at the 2nd Berlin Roundtable on Refugees and Migration.

Short text Books 

IMISCOE and Spinger are very proud to announce the launch of a new Series of Short Readers on Key issues in European Migration Studies! 

Written by both senior experts and emerging young scholars, this series covers key theoretical issues, uses case study examples from across Europe, and outlines main research and policy questions for the future, in plain language. These readers will offer the best companion to undergraduate and graduate students in migration, ethnicity, citizenship but also European Union studies and wider sociology, politics, geography, social policy, demography and history courses.

While several topics have been commissioned already (first titles of the series will launch in 2019), feel free to propose a topic to the IMISCOE Editorial Committee for consideration.

Interested in writing a short reader? The proposal form is available HERE.
