IMISCOE PhD Lead Workshop on Norms and Values
This workshop is organised by the IMISCOE funded research initiative on norms and values in migration and integration (NOVAMI) in collaboration with the H2020 project NoVaMigra (Norms and Values in the European Migration and Refugee Crisis) as well as the research schools of Global Politics and International Migration and Ethnic Relations (IMER) at Malmö University.
This is a PhD lead workshop on Norms and Values hosted by the Malmö Institute for Studies of Migration, Diversity and Welfare (MIM), held online via Zoom on April 28th-29th.
Among the many panels (see below) EVS encourages submissions to the panel on Polarization: Finding our way through the maze of theories, measurements and conclusions, chaired by Quita Muis (EVS Dutch Team)
Owing to societal transformations at an increasingly high pace, norms and values have taken centre stage in many contemporary political debates and social subjectivities. As society transforms, so does the diffusion, transmission, and education of norms and values.
Many social science disciplines have explicitly and implicitly engaged in these debates and done profound work to inform our understanding of these transformations. However, definitions and usages of these salient analytical concepts vary across the social sciences and can become conflated or vague. Keeping analytical diversity in mind, the workshop aims to gather individuals from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds to discuss the study of norms and values within their work. The current call for abstracts extends an invitation to academics across the globe who work with norms and/or values.
