Towards New Migration Systems, Patterns and Policies in Eurasia: The Case of Turkey and the Russian Federation

25 November 2013

9th TurkMiS Workshop
09:00 – 17:30, Monday 25 November 2013
Ertegun House, 37a St Giles, Oxford

A workshop organised by TurkMiS at COMPAS, with South East European Studies, University of Oxford.

Convenors: Aysem Biriz Karacay (MiReKoc) and Franck Düvell (COMPAS)

Changes in the global socio-politico-economic order bring about changes of the direction and magnitude of international migration and subsequently of the global migration order, and vice versa. This entails diverse challenges to policy, society and businesses notably with respect to accommodating and managing change. Whilst conventional perspectives have for long favoured research on the traditional receiving countries in Western Europe and North America, the rise of the BRICS states (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) and other countries has refocused attention to other old and new destination countries. Notably Russia, a major receiving country for traditional and new flows and Turkey which undergoes a transition from a migrant sending to a receiving country, emerge as supplements and competitors to the conventional receiving countries. Both are also increasingly linked together in a systemic manner encompassing a region that stretches from northern Africa to the far East. This workshop will specifically explore and conceptualise migration and mobility between the two countries.
