Migration and refugee movements in the 21st century

Migration and refugee movements in the 21st century

February 2022

In recent years, we have been witnessing a change of era in human mobility. In an increasingly turbulent world, international migration can no longer be explained from the classic standpoint of going to work in another country in search of greater economic well-being. Increasingly, migratory movements are conditioned by a whole host of factors related to political change, opposition to a regime, war, ideological persecution and the effects of climate change or speculative capitalism.

In recent years, the need has also arisen to think critically about migrant reception policies and to identify systematic and grassroot initiatives that could promote greater solidarity and social justice.

The aim of this residency is to offer a working space that will help fuel the inspiration and exchange of ideas between researchers from the various social sciences, as well as writers and journalists working in the fields of migration and asylum, so that they can further their current investigations and writings, and share their knowledge with other professionals in the sector.

That is why we are making this open call to researchers from the social sciences, writers or journalists, or other professionals, who are currently working on a project related to this topic and who would like to benefit from one of the grants we are offering at faberllull.

* OPEN CALL IS NOW CLOSED - we will no longer accept further applications.
