The IMISCOE biography is online!

At the occasion of the tenth anniversary of IMISCOE, in April 2014, Aafke Brus conducted a study in order to look into the history and development of IMISCOE. This she did by studying the minutes of the Board of Directors meetings, interviewing key persons involved in the development of IMISCOE, and a survey amongst directors of institutional members as well as individual members. Her work entitled: 'Excellence, Diversity and Growth: A historical biography of the IMISCOE Research Network' sheds light not only on the history of the network, but also its structure, its research and publications.

What IMISCOE does

IMISCOE has established a number of publication series, including books as well as 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 (how to propose a bookproposal).

Research

Over the past decade IMISCOE 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.

The latter category includes news on activities, research, publications and events from members, as well as selected news that is important for the network members.
