Call 11b: Summer school ‘EU-SILC training workshop: Comparative research on migration’

General information

The ‘EU-SILC trainings workshop: Comparative research on migration’ aims at training doctoral students or early-career researchers. It is also open to academics, policy practitioners and other interested users, who want to provide participants with opportunities to discuss their projects and to network with leading international experts and other colleagues in the field.

The summer school will take place in the center of Berlin, at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin) and will be hosted by the Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) at the DIW Berlin. The SOEP will provide and organize logistics for the week (practical information will be given soon). 

The summer school can be combined with the ‘Advanced research on integration of migrants and refugees’ workshop.

Objectives and preliminary programme

This summer school focuses on comparative research on migration as a kind of EU-SILC training workshop including a workshop on EU-SILC clone. With the help of SOEP data, we have created a clone of EU-SILC longitudinal data for Germany that is especially valuable for migration researchers. In SOEP, different migration subsamples allow much more detailed analysis for migrants of the first or second generation living in Germany than the original EU-SILC-Sample provided by Eurostat. Furthermore, the workshop will cover advanced research on migration with the use of EU-SILC data.

The ‘EU-SILC training workshop’ can be combined (without extra application) with the ‘Advanced research on integration of migrants and refugees’ summer school (22-24 October 2018). The key aim of this summer school is the issue of how immigrants and refugees integrate in their host countries, especially in terms of their labour force participation. Immigration tops the list of challenges of greatest concern to European Union citizens, but at the same time there are numerous economic and political reasons to allow and to facilitate immigration in ageing European populations.

The summer school will be organised in different sessions covering an introduction and training session with the SOEP EU-SILC clone. Invited researchers and participants will present their work (or their research idea) with EU-SILC (clone) data on the topic of migration.  

Information for applicants

The summer school is primarily aimed at PhD students/postdocs/early-stage researchers but will also be open to interested practitioners. The programme will be tailored for researchers wishing to acquire multidisciplinary insight and competences about the process of integration of migrants and refugees.

Candidates are expected to fill in the application form before 4 September 2018, including a paper/abstract, short motivation and CV. Candidates are expected to provide a poster related to their current work and/or their applied research question.  All applicants will be informed whether their applications have been accepted by 11 September 2018.

Participation to this summer school is free of charge and subsistence costs are covered by the project. Potential participants may receive a partial reimbursement of travel costs. Further practical information will be given later.

Participation is subject to InGRID-2 project’s terms and conditions for InGRID-2 summer schools.
