(Irregular) Transit Migration in Europe

(Irregular) Transit Migration in the European space:Theory, Politics and Research Methodology
18-20 April 2008, Koc, Istanbul, TurkeyCall for participants
The issue of irregular transit migration is often at the centre of political discussion around the externalisation and internationalisation of EU migration control. However, there is neither a definition in international law nor a commonly agreed scientific definition of transit migration. This conference will therefore address empirical gaps, problematic methodologies, blurred concepts and missing definitions. By bringing together experts from various disciplines studying this phenomenon from both the sending, transit and receiving countries' perspectives, it will aim to contribute a more appropriate typology, a theory of transit migration, as well as considering ways of improving the reliability of data and methodologies.For a the conference abstract, the conference outline or the conference presentations, visit the COMPAS website, Conferences and Events Already Held page.
