2017 Doctoral Workshop "Demographic change, migration and integration: interdisciplinary perspectives"
Date: 13/14 September in Jena
Organised by Matthias Huber, Chair of Economics/Public Finance; Lea Kvarantan Huber, Chair of Economic Geography
Financially supported by the Graduiertenakademie of the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena.
Aim: Since decades migration has been an important topic not only in the public, but also in the scientific discussion of many disciplines. In particular, two aspects have been widely discussed: the need for migration and the challenges of the integration process in the destination country. The need for migration depends on the economic growth, and also on the expected impacts of demographic change. The successful integration of immigrants in the host country is a complex process challenging many actors. Therefore, in many disciplines scholars work on that topic: e.g. in geography, economics, sociology, cultural science, politival science, education science or psychology. The workshop is aimed to highlight the interdisciplinary approach and to discuss recent research by young researchers. Though the interdisciplinary nature of the topic "migration", sometimes the discussion lack multi-disciplinary perspectives. We want to combine the perspectives from many different angles, identify differences and similarities, and offer an interdisciplinary exchange on migration related research qiestions.

2015 Workshop "Migration Barriers"
6/7 November 2015 in Jena
Organised by the Chair in cooperation with the Jena Graduate School on Human Behaviour and Change (GSBC).
Aim: The aim of this workshop is to bring together economicsts and researchers from related disciplines who cast light on new developments in theoretical and empirical research related to the emergence, importance, and dismantling of migration barriers. Barriers can be due to individual characteristics, cultural differences, restrictive or non-harmonized policies, and combinations of these and other factors.
