The Max Weber Programme has organized a multi-disciplinary workshop on the moral, political, cultural and institutional challenges the EU faces in the midst of the current refugee crisis. Bringing together historians, legal scholars and political scientists, the aim of the workshop is to showcase new research related to the crisis to facilitate a better-informed public debate. Contributions range from analyses of xenophobia in Europe, to a review of migrants’ perceptions of the EU, and from investigations of current EU asylum policy, to an examination of international responses to the European refugee crisis at the end of World War II. 24 January – please register.

How has Europeanisation affected the link between citizenship and governance in and across the new states of South East Europe? This book unpacks the intimate relationship between the European Union, national governments, and citizens through a tripartite model that captures the uneven and diversified effects of Europeanisation on the governance of citizenship-related policy areas. The volume highlights the transformative power of European integration not only on modes of governance in various policy areas, but also on practices and experiences of citizenship.

This volume analyses the role gender plays in the relationship between globalisation, migration and reproductive labour. Using ethnographic methods, the authors draw on the voices of migrant men and women in Italy to show how masculinities are constructed within the home through migrant men's interactions with male and female employers, women relations and their wider ethnic network. The authors highlight how migrant men's experiences of reproductive labour and family are shaped by global forces and national public policies, and how they negotiate the changes and potential conflicts that their 'feminised' jobs in care work entail.
