V4Net – Visegrád Anthropologists’ Network Conference
April 1-2, 2019, Collegium Historicum, ul. Umultowska 89, Poznań, Poland

Call for Papers

Almost 30 years have elapsed since the collapse of socialism in Central and Eastern Europe. This is the time-span of one generation. One of the most conspicuous features of the socio- economic transformations has been high rates of migration. The phenomenon, also known in the past, has become a common experience for large groups of people. As such, it demands anthropological scrutiny.

This call for papers is an invitation to present current work that illuminates the impact of migration and mobility on the lives of millions of people in the region of Central and Eastern Europe and beyond. We are particularly interested in papers addressing:

• Causes, forms and patterns of migration from Central and Eastern Europe to the West and to Central Europe from other parts of the world

• Everyday experiences of “being a migrant”

• Transnational lives of mobile people and effects on kinship, the social lives of families, and local communities

• Perceptions and reactions to migration – from hospitality to lack of interest or hostility

• Impact of media representations (from liberal-cosmopolitan to conservative-xenophobic)

• Political consequences of mobility for individuals and sending communities

Titles and abstracts (250 words) should be sent to Michal Buchowski – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.– by 15th January 2019. The Conference Committee will make its selection of papers by January 31.

On Thursday, January 17, 2013 the international conference of the REKRY AMARE project took place in Lahti, Finland. The topic of the conference was: International recruiting - challenges and solutionsand was organized by the University of Helsinki, Palmenia Center for Continuing Education. The meeting was at the same time a final event of this three-year long project, in which CeBaM is an international partner on Polish side. During the conference Magdalena Ziółek-Skrzypczak, PhD and Patricia Krolik, MA from CeBaM presented contemporary challenges of migration and integration processes in Poland and CeBaM's role in developing new research and projects on migration topics.

The objective of the project REKRY-AMARE (Promoting Work-related Immigration and Spreading Good Practices in the EU) is to develop a model of the integration of qualified migrants into European labor markets. The project is based on an exchange of experiences between the partner institutions involved in the project from different EU countries (Finland, Ireland, Great Britain, Germany, Estonia and Poland), who discuss themes such as the history of emigration and immigration in their respective countries and local integration activities aiding the successful functioning of the system for acquiring migrants according to the needs of the labor market.

The joint seminars and conferences organized by the partner institutions during the project duration (2010-2013) constitute an important international discussion platform on the role of immigrants in the economic and demographic stability of the European Union.
