International Conference "The Sociology of Migration: Current Developments and Future Trends" (June 23-24, 2016)

23.06.2016 at 10:00

The section migration and ethnic minorities of the German Sociological Association (DGS) was founded 30 years ago and has developed from a marginalized field of study into one of the most dynamic research areas among German social sciences (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland). The conference “The Sociology of Migration: Current Developments and Future Trends” builds on this success story and seeks to assess the present state and the future advance of migration research. In times of increasing numbers of refugee arrivals in the EU as well as intra-European migration, fuelling heated political debates, the need for thorough sociological analysis is bigger than ever in order to prepare for current and future challenges.
