Call for papers

The editorial team of the journal Migration Politics warmly welcome paper proposals for our authors’ fellowship in residence programme. We are seeking submissions from scholars conducting innovative and inspiring research on the politics involved in representing, controlling, and managing migration. We want to promote work that dares to bring in new theoretical or conceptual angles to Migration Studies by engaging with wider theories and debates in political science, sociology, law and other disciplines. We encourage submissions that provide primarily conceptual or philosophical contributions. In empirically oriented work, we seek to promote high standards of methodological transparency and rigour (including through appendices and  data deposits).

Successful applicants will spend a one week intensive fellowship in residence period at the University of Amsterdam to develop their ideas into a manuscript ready for submission. Scholars taking part in the author fellowship residency programme are expected to submit their papers for review to the Migration Politics journal that offers rigorous, single-blind peer review and full open access without article processing charges (platinum open access).

Next paper proposal deadline: 15 November 2021

The author residency programme is open to scholars with a PhD at all career stages as well as to PhD candidates.
