Family Migration Network
This emerging network brings together key scholars, policy makers, practitioners and post-graduate students from across Europe to examine family migration across Europe. The aim of this network is to provide a forum for debate and the exchange of knowledge for those researching, studying and working within migration from the family perspective. Our objective is to organise conferences, seminars and publications to increase understanding of this often salient topic and influence policy surrounding family migration at the local, national and international level.
Our supporters and funders include:
- The ESRC Centre on Dynamics of Diversity (CoDE)
- Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence
- Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing (MICRA)
- Cathie March Institute for Social Research (CMIST)
- The University of Manchester School of Social Sciences
- National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM)
The Centre on Dynamics of Diversity hosted a two-day international conference on the 7th and 8th of February 2017 entitled ‘Migration and Families in Europe: National and Local Perspectives at a Time of Euroscepticism’. The conference brought together scholars, practitioners and policy makers from the UK and Europe to discuss the complexity of migration and what it means for families in the current political climate. The conference explored a range of topics on family migration including ageing and elderly migration; refugee families; parenting and migrant children; family migration policies and the movement of families to and within the EU; and methods and challenges in researching family migration.
