IMISCOE Spring Conference 2016
Measures of Control: Managing Migration in the 21. Century
(AMIS, University of Copenhagen)
Centre for Advanced Migration Studies (AMIS) and IMISCOE jointly organize a conference on controlling migration, University of Copenhagen, 18-19. February 2016.
In response to increasing and new patterns of migration, policies of control are increasingly proposed and implemented in Europe and elsewhere. This includes efforts to control numbers of immigrants and in particular the composition of the immigrant group, but also efforts to impact the political, social and cultural integration of immigrants once they have arrived in destination societies. This conference theorizes control, including its forms, manifestations and limits. Contributions may address (but are not restricted to):
- Border controls, the externalization of border controls, and the technologies used to monitor and restrict migration
- The rise and significance of migration industries, including the outsourcing of control to private companies
- Incentives and disincentives – measures and technologies used to attract and keep out migrants
- The refugee crisis and efforts to control and manage the influx in Europe
- Efforts to prevent radicalization, including restrictions on the right of exit (e.g. to go fight in Syria)
- Experiences of loss of control and xenophobia
- Policies to impact the behaviour of immigrants, including their political, social and cultural integration
- Conflicts between control and liberal rights in the aftermath of the Paris and Copenhagen killings
