The Migration Working Group (MWG) is a researcher-led research group, whose aim is to foster exchange on the latest, cutting-edge migration research and give the opportunity to early career scholars and PhD researchers to present their research.
The MWG is organised by the Migration Policy Centre (MPC) in coordination with EUI researchers Leon Boveland (ECON), Fabian Riesinger (HEC), Julie Fournier (SPS), and Erendira Leon (SPS).
The sessions of the 2023-2024 series will held in-person, with a hybrid option for those not located in Florence. Zoom links will be provided after registration to each event. All sessions will take place in person from 15:00 to 16:30 in Sala Triaria, Villa Schifanoia. Each session will feature presentations of 2 draft papers with a total of 45 minutes designated for each presentation/discussion, including audience Q&A.
