Recap of our Internal NUPS-Conference: “Crisis are golden times for migrant knowledge”

From March 1st to 3rd,  about 15 renowned international scientists and scholars met at the TU Berlin. The days of the conference were characterized by a fruitful exchange, the joy of seeing each other in person and exciting discussions. After the turbulent pandemic period, such a gathering is not a matter to be taken for granted.

In collaborative working groups, new future project ideas were developed on the project guidelines Migration and Climate Change as well as Technological Change, Migration and the Future of Work.

We look back very positively on the first outcomes of our brainstorming throughout the conference, including two sketches for research proposals, as well as one shared publication (Disrupted Transition: Taxonomies of Mismatches of Planning Migrant Housing). Three webinars were planned and will take place in the next months (Subjects: Methodologies/Visa Decisons/Legal Professionals; Matching Programs/Relocating Refugees/Algorhythmical Fairness; Ukrainian Refugees in European Muncipalities). 

After all, the joint development of ideas and concepts on the basis of an international exchange and networking is one of the key intentions of the nups networking unit.
