New challenges are emerging in the field of migration research in the wake of economisation of research, the increasing pressure to quickly produce policy-relevant knowledge, the changing relationship of commissioned and basic research, ongoing transformations with regard to governance-science nexuses and so forth.
The 12th Annual IMISCOE Conference hosts a two-session workshop on “Challenges in commissioned migration research”. The first session aims to discuss structural constraints and link them up with actual consequences for ethics, epistemological foundations and practices of commissioned research in migration studies. The second session is dedicated to the development of follow-up activities, both in terms of research opportunities and future cooperation.
