The Dutch Association for Migration Research (DAMR) aims to increase the scientific standing of migration research by emphasizing on research methodology, theory formation and attention for the societal relevance of migration research. A specific objective of the association is to bring together PhD candidates and young researchers to stimulate interaction and scientific discussion. DAMR is an interdisciplinary association in which different disciplines covering the broad field of migration come together. In this way, the association seeks to stimulate interdisciplinary and inter-university research.

Call for Proposals: DAMR PhD Event 2020

Call for Proposals: PhD Event

DAMR seeks to actively engage with PhD researchers working on migration issues. For this aim, the DAMR gives young researchers the opportunity to organize academic events. Complete proposals should be sent to Laura Cleton (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by 17 February 2020.

The proposed events can be workshops, panel debates, or other innovative events that bring together academic researchers and/or engage with a wider audience. The focus of the event can be on a wide range of issues related to migration debates around the world, and relate to different dimensions of the phenomenon. However, activities that have an interdisciplinary approach and involve members from various institutions are particularly encouraged.

DAMR can contribute towards the costs of organizing an event up to a maximum of 500€ per event, depending on the proposed event budget and within the limits of the available funds. The event should take place in 2020.

If you are interested in organizing an event, submit your proposal of max. 2 pages specifying the following: Names and affiliations of workshop coordinators; Title and abstract of the proposed workshop; Provisional event type and details (sessions, participants, proposed invited guests); Draft budget
