[ Call for Papers | Applications ]

The Berlin Institute for Comparative Social Research (Berliner Institut für Vergleichende Sozialforschung e.V. BIVS) is currently organising, in cooperation with European Research Forum on Migration and Ethnic Relations (EuroFor), a series of twelve scientific Marie-Curie-conferences regarding the topic of migration policies and management within the next four years (2004 - 2007). This project is partly funded by the DG Research of the European Commission.
All twelve conferences will concentrate on current and future political challenges resulting from international migration processes. They seek to provide a platform for debates on new and innovative research as well as policies regarding the management of migration. A further major aim of the conferences will be to develop the participants' research methods through the provision of training. Importance will be placed on the realisation of actual political practice and government strategies from research results.
Academics and experts from across Europe will be asked to lend their perspective on current migration processes. There will be a special focus on early stage researchers at the conferences, who will be given the opportunity to present their research results alongside their more established peers.

There are 25 Marie-Curie grants available for each conference, which cover travel and living allowances. We would ask those interested in presenting to send a proposal to us beforehand for assessment. Please see the following guidelines and proposal procedures:


  • Early-stage researchers: This refers to researchers holding a university (or equivalent institution of higher education) degree that provides access to doctoral studies, at the beginning of their research career with less than four years' active research experience.
  • Experienced researchers: This applies to researchers holding a university (or equivalent institution of higher education) degree that provides access to doctoral studies, with more than four years of active research experience or involved in post-doctorate programmes.
The presentation should be approximately 20 - 25 minutes in length and be relevant to one of the topics of the seminars/workshops. The full proposal for the presentation should be handed in to us in advance for assessment and should include:
  • Abstract of the paper, including an outline of the addressed objectives, applied methodology, research results and a brief bibliography (no longer than 3 pages, double spaced)
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Statement of purpose providing a clear overview of your academic and professional interests, background and future plans. You may also use the Statement of Purpose to record personal and professional experiences that are relevant to your application and that may not be obvious in your curriculum vitae (no longer than 1 page, double spaced).

The full overview as well as all details may be found on the Website of the EuroFor Conferences.
