19 & 20 September 2019 2019 Salzburg Conference in Interdisciplinary Poverty Research Migration and Poverty
The Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research (CEPR), University of Salzburg, announces that the program of the conference "Migration and Poverty", University of Salzburg, 19 and 20 September 2019, is now online. The program fetaures four kenyote talks, over 60 talks in parallel panels and round tables. If you are interested to attend, please register at your earliest convenience. This conference aims to bring together researchers and scholars from different disciplines, approaches, backgrounds and experiences working on the complex and manifold relation of migration and poverty. Much migration within states and across borders is driven by poverty and the hope for a better well-being and improved living standard but migration is also risky and opens new vulnerabilities. Once migrants reach their chosen destination – if they reach it all – they face new difficulties and are often among the poorest and most disadvantaged in their new home society. On the one hand migration can be a tool to escape poverty, on the other hand it can lead to poverty and social exclusion.
This conference has no disciplinary or geographical focus and welcomes papers on intra- and transnational migration in all its forms (voluntary, forced, impelled, seasonal etc.) and its relation to (relative, absolute, monetary, multidimensional etc.) poverty, inequality and social exclusion. Papers exploring normative issues of (social and global) justice, human rights or ethics in relation to migration and poverty are welcomed.
