NVD - WODC Seminar: ‘Choice’ of the destination country and (im)mobility within Europe

dinsdag 09 oktober 2018
Turfmarkt 147, Den Haag


The Netherlands Demographic Society (NVD) is organizing on Tuesday, 9 October 2018 the seminar ‘Choice of the destination country and (im)mobility within Europe, in cooperation with the Research and Documentation Centre (WODC)’. The seminar is hosted by WODC in the Hague. The working language is English.

This seminar discusses migration to and mobility within Europe, which are the two main themes of the seminar. Nation states, European migration policy and border control on the one hand, and migrants from non-EU countries looking for safety and a better life on the other: what are the motivations of these migrants to settle in a specific European country? How are the decisions made? Is settlement in a certain country a ‘conscious’ choice or does coincidence also play a role? What is the role of expectations, aspirations, social networks, and admission policies, including intra-European mobility of regular and irregular migrants? What are the coping strategies of irregular migrants to avoid deportation?

In this seminar, presentations will seek answers to these and similar questions using results from quantitative or qualitative research, covering different groups (e.g. asylum seekers and labour migrants; unaccompanied minors and adult migrants) and nationalities (e.g. Eritrean, Syrian, Afghan, Nigerian) in different European countries (e.g. Norway, Italy, the Netherlands).

You can register for this seminar by sending an email to: i.kulu@minvenj.nl. As the number of seats is limited, quick registration is advised.
