Margaret Walton-Roberts

published: 2010 | Brochure | South Asian Migration conference

The critical study of South Asian migration requires, arguably, an interdisciplinary and international collaborative approach.  The aim of this event is to take stock of the different topics currently being theorized, and to help identify important new areas of research.  Papers are particularly sought on the following 4 themes: (1) historical and social factors behind migration, and the ways that such factors have been conceived; (2) the plurality of different types of migration, and how these maybe (dis)connected; (3) the socially / spatially differentiated natures of citizenship politics; (4) The increasing role of overseas migrant populations in terms of the sending regionís economic development and international political relations.
