Changing Patterns of Migration – Changing Patterns of Social Inequalities? Borders and Boundaries in the Enlarged Europe

Date: April 12 - 13, 2012
Site: Bielefeld, Germany

Organiser: Universität Bielefeld, Zentrum für Deutschland und Europastudien (ZDES), Institut für Weltgesellschaft (IW), Transnational Relations/COMCAD
Topics: This workshop addresses the transformation and new quality of migration between Eastern and Western Europe. By bringing together sociologists, social anthropologists, political scientists and economists, the following topics (among others) will be addressed: 1. In which ways do new types of migration/mobility transform patterns of social inequality in sending and receiving countries? 2. How does the relation between the territorial borders and social boundaries change in the course of new migration dynamics? 3. Do new types of migration promote the emergence of new social spaces, such as transnational labour markets, cross-border fields of care and transnational scientific communities? If yes, what kind of social stratifications come into being within these new transnational spaces? 4. In which manner do formal institutional arrangements, such as welfare, migration, care and gender regimes intersect with informal practices of migrants? Under what conditions do these interrelations result in privileging or depriving particular groups? Insights from current empirical research addressing the following topics (among others) are highly welcome: Transformation of territorial borders and social boundaries in Europe; Inequality and/of geographic mobility; Transnational labour markets; Cross-border fields of care services; Migration and transformation of welfare, Cross-border circulation of talents.

Mixing and remixing – public and private social policies in austere times

Date: July 30 - August 2, 2012
Site: Southampton, UK
Organiser: Faculty of Social and Human Sciences, University of Southampton; The European Network for Social Policy Analysis ESPAnet
Topics: During the last decade we have seen a shift from public to private welfare in many countries. In core programmes such as pensions or health care public provision has been curtailed, accompanied by new incentives, regulation and high expectations of policy-makers for non-state provision. In labour market policies and unemployment benefits activation has been dominant. Only family policies have seen some increase in state support. The shift towards non-state social policies came at a time when business invested less in occupational welfare and when household incomes were stagnating, exacerbated by the financial crisis that began in 2008. It appears that those public and private actors able to provide collective protection against social risks retreat, making personalised insurance more and more important for individuals whose incomes are also under pressure. This doctoral workshop invites papers dealing theoretically, conceptually and empirically with such pressures and with the ever shifting boundary between the public and the private in contemporary European societies. Papers might explore questions such as: Business and welfare; State regulation of the non-state sector; The politics of boundary-setting between public and private social policies; The re-emergence of the state as provider? Charities and social policy; Private households between public and private welfare.

Summer Programme on the WTO, International Trade and Development

Date: July 2 – 13, 2012

In addition, it has also developed cutting-edge expertise on the issues and challenges inherent to trade liberalisation and regulation. In its teaching programmes, the Graduate Institute is fortunate to be able to draw on contributions from high-ranking WTO staff and a world-renowned faculty. The Summer Programme on the WTO, International Trade and Development builds upon this long tradition and offers a unique opportunity to observe first-hand the atmosphere and analyses surrounding multilateral trade, as well as witness some of the most important international discussions on the topic.

Re-Inventing Eastern Europe

Date: May 17 – 19, 2012
Site: Vienna, Austria
Organiser: Euroacademia

Topics: The Euroacademia International Conference aims rather than asserting to make a case and to provide alternative views on the dynamics, persistence and manifestations of the practices of alterity making that take place in Europe and broadly in the mental mappings of the world. It offers an opportunity for scholars, activists and practitioners to locate, discuss and debate the multiple dimensions in which specific narratives of alterity making towards Eastern Europe preserve their salience today in re-furbished and re-fashioned manners. The conference aims to look at the processes of alterity making as puzzles and to address the persistence of the East-West dichotomies.

Language: English
Fee: 180 €

Deadline: for Panels - January 15, 2012; for Papers - February 20, 2012
