International Migration in Europe: New Trends, New Methods of Analysis

In cooperation with the Institute for Research on Population and Social Policies

The EAPS Working Group on International Migration in Europe, together with the Institute for Research on Population and Social Policies, organises its second conference next fall in Rome (Italy, 25 – 27 November 2004). This conference intends to address some of the emerging issues in European migration, focusing on new trends and methods of analysis. Specific consideration will be given to four research themes: the uses and limitations of special surveys in international migration studies, new forms of migration in Europe, the evolution of regional patterns of European international migration, and the problems of measuring the integration of migrants.

The conference is open to researchers worldwide but participation will be limited to 60–70. Papers will be selected by the steering committee. All the sessions will be plenary and the possibility of including a poster session will be considered. There will be no registration fee for the conference. Grants to cover travel and/or accommodation expenses of participants are not provided.
