Call for New Editors of Comparative Migration Studies (an IMISCOE journal). Deadline: 15 July 2022.
The journal Comparative Migration Studies (CMS) invites applications for several new members of the Editorial Board. In particular, CMS invites non-European scholars working on migration and (migration-related) diversity from various disciplines, including sociology, demography, anthropology, political sciences, law, geography and economics.
Comparative Migration Studies is an international peer-reviewed journal that has been selected for inclusion in the Web of Science. CMS is associated with the IMISCOE Research Network. CMS distinguishes itself as a journal on three elements:
- An explicit comparative orientation. They believe that a focus on comparative research can promote the theoretical development of migration studies. This can involve various types of comparative studies (between countries, groups, levels, historical periods).
- A wide disciplinary angle. CMS aims to develop a wide disciplinary angle, such as political science, economics, law, history, demography, social geography, sociology, cultural studies, literature, psychology and anthropology.
- An open access journal. They believe open access nowadays is the best way to get the widest possible exposure for the work published in our journal. Publishing your articles with CMS means that other scholars will have easy access to your work and will be more likely to actually read it and refer to it. Open access publishing is not without costs.
In order to develop the journal further, and to make sure that all relevant disciplines and methodological traditions are well represented, the editorial board will be expanded. They invite applications from scholars from various disciplines:
- working in the field of migration studies
- special interest in comparative research
- quantitative research background
Being a member of the editorial board means that you will be involved in policymaking regarding the journal and that as editor you will be in charge of reviewing articles that are in your area of expertise (on average, a couple of hours per month).

Residency in Migration and Refugee Movements in the 21st Century, faberllull, Olot, Spain or La Massana, Andorra, 1-11 February 2022. Deadline: 24 November 2021.
This is an 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 offered at faberllull.
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.
