19th International Migration Conference "Mapping the Nation 2019"

The structure of the body politic of modern societies as nation-states and the dynamic, in part also contradictory processes of globalization are central factors decisively shaping the phenomena of migration.

On the one hand, there is the nation-state with its basic legal frameworks on migration policy, especially in the spheres of labor migration, reunification of families, granting asylum. On the other hand, there are the processes of internationalization, such as in connection with supranational organizations, for example the EU, and developments in the worldwide, international labor markets, including the control of migration movements, for example via a policy of recruitment of needed professionals. This is compounded by the factor of forced migration, refugees fleeing from wars and conflicts continuing across the world, in particular so-called ‘low intensity conflicts,’ such as in Eritrea or the Sudan.

The focus of the conference should be on the following questions: What connections and challenges exist between nation-state/nation and migration? What current developments of nation-state/nation and migration are emerging in the face of the processes of internationalization? How do conflicts and wars affect the connections between nation/ nation-state /internationalization?
