Rethinking Migration in Times of Economic Crisis in Europe

Deutsche  Version

Times of crisis challenge the governance of migration and seem to heighten the socio-economic vulnerabilities of migrants in Europe. Are there historic paragons to this situation and what are its features? Focusing on the lives of different types of migrants and refugees, which repercussions can be observed? And which policies do governments choose and implement as solutions? The conference questions the impact of the global economic crisis on immigration policies, on migrants, on refugees and on the irregular migrants themselves as well as on social cohesion in European societies.
