Workshop of the Standing Group on Migration and Ethnicity

How to do migration research

13 – 14 April 2023, Universitat Pompeu Fabra 


Stay tuned – applications are opening soon!

Our Standing Group Migration and Ethnicity invites researchers at all levels to join their workshop co-organised with and hosted by GRITIM and the Department of Social and Political Science of UPF.

Over two days of expert-led sessions, the workshop will focus on unpacking fundamental issues and questions that migration scholars may encounter in their research process. 

About the workshop

  • Present and discuss your work
  • Get feedback from seasoned scholars
  • Connect with like-minded researchers

This workshop welcomes all scholars confronted with and/or interested in different methodological challenges and approaches in migration research.

Doctoral students and early career researchers are particularly encouraged to join.

This workshop seeks to encourage discussion on fundamental issues and questions that migration scholars will encounter in their research process.

Especially in the context of the inter- or multi-disciplinary nature of migration studies, this workshop aims to raise awareness of and appreciation for the importance of developing and using solid methodological procedures and credible data to arrive at rigorous research results that are understood by and relevant to scholars and practitioners alike.

By covering diverse methodologies in migration research, this workshop sets out to prepare engaged and conscientious scholars on how to confront migration issues knowing that these are wrapped up in challenging power relations and growing inequalities characteristic of today’s world.

While migration issues are hardly ever neutral, scholars can be trained to think critically about key migration concepts and their measurements, how to test their research hypotheses, how to build theoretical frameworks to synthesise key findings and how to share such findings to academic and non-academic audiences.

The workshop will include several sessions that adopt a problem-based and tool-based approach to conducting migration research. In each session, speakers will focus their presentations on particular questions or issues that migration scholars are likely to face, while also discussing how a particular method or data source can offer a helpful solution. Each workshop session is guided by a key question.
