Extrait de la présentation en ligne :
"As Europe is currently muddling through a deep economic crisis with repercussions on the political stability of many European states, including the European Union as such, this conference will direct attention to the links between the crisis and patterns of migration into, between and from European countries. The three keywords in the conference subtitle indicate three analytical approaches.
Perception directs attention to theoretical and empirical questions about the nature of crisis and ideas about root causes of migration. Possible sub-themes of workshops are about the nature of crisis as such. Another related theme concerns the established tendency of nation-states to increasingly manage and control migration. Challenge indicates that flows of migration challenge contemporary ideals and ideologies of social cohesion."
