Description

The ESRC Research Centre on Micro-Social Change (MiSoC) together with the Department of Sociology at the University of Essex are pleased to present the workshop “Emerging questions in migration research.”

The purpose of the event is to bring together researchers working around several growing areas in migration studies and enable cross-disciplinary exchange. Discussions will cover central questions such as “How do immigrants become citizens?”, “Why do the children of immigrants perform better in school?” and “What are the psychosocial experiences of refugees?”, among others.
