COMPAS Seminars on Migration Journeys
- 24 September 2012
One of our sister institutes here at Oxford is organising a series of seminars on the concept of migration journeys
The series will explore fruitful ways in which journeys may be approached analytically. Does the so-called ‘mobilities paradigm’ offer insights here? Can journeys usefully be analysed in terms of structure and agency? How do class, gender, generation and other social cleavages and power relations shape journeys? How can the risks and dangers encountered by migrants en route be addressed? These and other approaches will be drawn upon in the series to deepen our understanding of migrant journeys.
