International Conference

The implications of EU policies for the social, economic and political integration of immigrants

1 – 3 April 2015, Bucharest, Romania

Call for Papers

This Conference intends to raise awareness upon the subject of immigrant’s integration and upon the need of developing a more efficient strategy in order to create real premises for their social and economic integration. In 2012, the estimated number of immigrants in EU-27 was of 1.7 million, and another 1.7 million people that were previously residing in one EU Member State migrated to another Member State[1]. Not only should the magnitude of this phenomenon draw attention to it, but also its implications and consequences.

The event aims at encouraging a multi-disciplinary debate between scholars and practitioners from different fields of study, such as European studies and public policies. On the other hand, this conference represents a good opportunity for young researchers to promote their academic work and to interact with representatives of the public administration and civil society.

Specific topics include, but are not confined to:

  • determinants, patterns, and consequences of migration
  • implications of social policies towards the integration of immigrants
  • evaluation of policies that address the integration of immigrants
  • labor market impact
  • long-term effects and path dependencies
  • policy reactions and impact on the political evolutions
  • multiculturalism and interculturalism
  • European citizenship and European culture
  • transformation of values and attitudes
  • the security dimension of the immigration phenomenon
  • return migration
  • transnationality
  • integration policies and examples of good practices
  • demographic and economic aspects of human migrations
