Urban Politics, Migration, Diversity
Friday 24 April 2015, 9:30-17:30
MWP Common Room
MPI-MMG, Göttingen – MWP, Florence
joint Multidisciplinary Research Workshop
Cities are hubs in global migration patterns and arguable the place where the most mobile populations meet the least mobile ones.
This graduate workshop aims to bring together researchers who are working on issues linked to the city, migration or both.
The focus of the workshop will be on issues related to urban diversity. Understanding urban migration driven diversity calls for dynamic analysis of the issues involved. While some headway has been made with a recent diversity turn in the migration literature there is ample room to further our understanding of the migration-city nexus.
Particularly we face some conceptual and empirical hurdles in starting to think urban politics in more complex ways.
