What is the Migration Politics Award?
The editorial team of the journal Migration Politics warmly welcome paper proposals for our authors’ fellowship in residence programme. We are seeking submissions from scholars conducting innovative and inspiring research on the politics involved in representing, controlling, and managing migration. We want to promote work that dares to bring in new theoretical or conceptual angles to Migration Studies by engaging with wider theories and debates in political science, sociology, law and other disciplines. We encourage submissions that provide primarily conceptual or philosophical contributions. In empirically oriented work, we seek to promote high standards of methodological transparency and rigour (including through appendices and data deposits).
The Spring (April/May 2024) residency will take place at the University of Glasgow and is hosted by Gerasimos Tsourapas. Spring residents will interact with the International Politics of Mobility Sanctions (MOBSANCT) project team, which works on migration diplomacy in Europe and the Global South. The Fall (October/November 2024) residency will take place in Amsterdam and is hosted by Saskia Bonjour, Evelyn Ersanilli and Darshan Vigneswaran. Fall residents will interact with members of the Amsterdam Research Centre for Migration (ARC-M).
