[Conference Regensburg] Migration in and out of East and Southeast Europe


The third annual conference of the Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) is going to take place in Regensburg from July 2 to 4, 2015. This year's topic is Migration in and out of East and Southeast Europe: Values, Networks, Well-Being.

Migration is a key driver of social change, it shapes political landscapes, creates and disrupts social networks, changes population structures, transforms values and attitudes, impacts on labour markets, and affects living standards and well-being. Especially since the 19th century, intense international and domestic migration has had a significant impact on the societies of East and Southeast Europe. Many countries in the region have been prominent emigration countries, while at the same time being major destinations for immigrants and experiencing large-scale domestic migration.

This conference aims at exploring a range of social, economic and cultural effects of migration on the countries of East and Southeast Europe.

Conveners: Edvin Pezo, Olga Popova
