Deadline: 1 August 2016
Project on Middle East Political Science (POMEPS) is currently seeking proposals for a workshop to be held February 3, 2017 on the University of Southern California campus in Los Angeles that will look more deeply into the causes, nature and implications of refugee as well as other, “non-forced,” migration movements.
Proposals may address current processes or take a more historical approach. While the paper should focus on the contemporary Middle East, the papers could involve intra-regional movements, inward migration or out-migration to other world regions. The focus may be the short, medium or long-term implications of such movement(s) for questions of security, domestic or regional political economy, state-building, political identity, nationalism, etc.
All travel expenses will be covered, and participants will receive a modest honorarium.
International applicants are eligible to apply.
How to Apply
- Participants will draft short papers of approximately 2500 words, which will be discussed at the workshop and then edited for publication in an edition of the open access POMEPS Studies series.
- Proposals, along with a brief abstract and current CV must be submitted in a single PDF vai email.
