IMISCOE has established a number of publication series, including books as well the journal Comparative Migration Studies. In terms of book publications, IMISCOE has established a reputable IMISCOE Book Series with over 50 books over the past decade. Most books previously published can be found in the OAPEN library as well. All books are submitted to a rigorous peer-review procedure via the IMISCOE editorial committee. Furthermore, withthe IMISCOE Textbooks series, the network also provides a platform to publish educational books for use in the training of graduate-level students pursuing migration, integration and ethnic studies.
Throughout the year numerous IMISCOE events are organised, in the context of research clusters, publication events, PhD training, etc. The most important item on the annual agenda of IMISCOE is the annual conference, which has been organised every year since 2004 by one of IMISCOE's member institutes. This year's 11th Annual Conference will be organised by IUEM in Madrid; in 2015 the 12th Annual Conference will be held in Geneva (25-27 June 2015).
Over the past decade the IMISCOE RN has provided seed money to selected research initiatives. It has issued five consecutive Calls (2009-2014) for new research initiatives. The aim of these initiatives is to mobilize colleagues in order to explore possibilities of enhancing new research (by developing research proposals), of joint publications or other activities around specific topics as well as the establishment of Standing Committees for more long term research initiatives.
Training & Awards
Training of researchers is an essential task of the Network. By pooling the resources and expertise of its partners and members, IMISCOE facilitates the highest quality training for all Network members. It also makes long-term investments in the broader field by opening its training facilities to non-members. To this aim, the Network organizes annual winter- or summer schools for PhD's, as well as specific training modules at other IMISCOE events.
