Other Europes Colloquium 2010

ISET Other Europes Colloquium


On 1 September 2009 London Metropolitan University was greylisted by the University College Union and other unions because of an important dispute over significant job cuts.  This put the Colloquium in doubt as many speakers would have felt unable to attend.  We continued to hope that the dispute could be resolved in time for the event to take place. Unfortunately, even though there have been some very positive development in the last few weeks, the lifting of greylisting will not happen in sufficient time to allow us to fully promote the event or ensure speaker attendance.  We hope that the Colloquium will be able to be rescheduled but in the meantime we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  A notice will appear on the website in due course.  We will refund any payments that have already been made.

European Futures? Migration, Cohesion, Recession

The second ISET Other Europes Colloquium focuses
on current concerns about the impact of the global financial crisis
on the policies and the politics of migration.

ISET’s Other Europes Colloquia are distinguished by their focus on innovative ways to appraise, critique and engage with counter-hegemonic processes
and agents of transformation. This Colloquium will offer an occasion
for innovative thinking on the interplay between the unfolding financial
and economic crisis, social cohesion across Europe, and existing policies
and geopolitics of migration. Discussion of the most suitable methodological and thematic approaches to address these issues will be included.
There will be two plenary sessions and two panel discussions.

Confirmed Plenary speakers:

Steve Vertovec
Director, Max-Planck Institute
for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity, Göttingen

Linda McDowell
Professor of Human Geography, University of Oxford

Bridget Anderson
