SIRIUS Conference - Call for Papers - 2 days left


The SIRIUS project is pleased to announce its first International Conference entitled "Integrating migrants, refugees and asylum seekers into European labour markets: enablers and barriers". The conference will take place on 29-30 August, at Glasgow Caledonian University, in Scotland, (UK). The conference aims to offer scholars from across disciplines and countries opportunities to exchange on issues related to the integration of migrants and refugees in different labour markets and communities. While the conference invites scholars with different levels of experience and seniority, a pre-conference workshop reserved to PhD students and early career researchers will be organised on 28 August with a focus on Research Methods and Ethics in Migration and Refugee Studies.

To encourage academic discussion across fields and disciplines, the conference will be structured along six main thematic lines, keynote speakers (Prof. Cristina Boswell, University of Edinburgh, Dr. Amparo Gonzalez-Ferrer, Spanish National Research Council, Prof. Barbara Oomen, University of Utrecht), and two plenary debates.

Papers and abstracts should be submitted in English. Early career researchers/PhD students in particular are invited to share work-in-progress papers and participate to the pre-conference day. Abstracts should not exceed 400 words (including references).

Authors should submit their abstracts via email to by 15th March 2019. The conference is free of charge.
