CfP IMISCOE Spring Conference 2018

On 1-2 March 2018, Centre of Migration Research (University of Warsaw), organizes a spring conference on migration and labour market; patterns and challenges of immigrants’ labour market incorporation in contemporary Europe.
Economic integration of immigrants is commonly presented as one of key preconditions for successful integration in other spheres (social integration in particular). Nonetheless, it remains unclear how we should define – and understand – integration in economic sense: as unrestricted access of immigrants to the labour market and employment (Penninx 1990), as an ability to obtain an identical or similar position on the labour to the representatives of the receiving society (Barrett and Duffy 2007; Ager and Strang 2008) or simply as successful labour market incorporation. Additionally, most of the theoretical concepts and empirical studies focus on the American or Western European model of immigration (and integration) and do not necessarily address such issues as particularities of temporary migration or the role of migration policies in various phases of the migration transition (Arango 2012).
