Call for Papers: Workshop on Labour Migration and Social Change in South Asia

Property Rights for Street Vendors

This workshop offers a platform for young researchers, scholars and practitioners to share thoughts and receive feedback on current research about labour migration and the social changes it induces in sending and receiving communities. We invite papers from PhD scholars as well as young researchers and practitioners engaged with issues of migration and social change. The papers may be theoretical or empirical, qualitative or quantitative in their approach, but must rely on in-depth knowledge of labour migration, and clearly eludicate the link between migration and social change. Recognizing that social changes encompass a wide array of social dynamics, papers may encompass themes related to, but not exclusive to poverty, livelihoods, emerging labor market opportunities, social mobility, access to migration opportunity, inequality, caste relations, gender, spatial changes, etc.

Accepted papers will be invited to make presentations approximately 15 minutes-long at the workshop. Discussants and panel chairpersons will be reputable academicians and practitioners working in the field of labour migration in a social sciences context. The workshop will offer participants an opportunity to get valuable feedback from experts, but also interact and make connections with peers interested in the field of migration. Limited funds are available to support travel and accommodation for out-of-station scholars, and will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
