Speed Geeking the Many Dimensions of Migration


International migration can be a massive, multi-layered and mind-bending subject, so the REMINDER Project - which is run from Oxford University’s Centre on Migration, Policy and Society - will compress everything you need to know about EU migration into a set of six minute presentations! Academics will cut the waffle and race against the clock to share their innovative and exciting research.

We hear a lot about the impacts of migration in the EU, but what are the real costs and benefits? How do the impacts of the free movement of EU citizens differ from the impacts of people coming to Europe from outside the EU, and are the impacts the same for all EU member states? And why are political and media debates about migration, and public attitudes towards it, so different in different EU member states? All of these questions, and many more, will be answered by the (probably panicking) team as they charge valiantly through 20 images that explain their project, each of which will only be displayed for a maximum of 20 seconds.

The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session. The event will be live streamed, so even if you can't attend in person, you can still participate.

The REMINDER research project brings together multiple strands of the social sciences to develop a comprehensive analysis of the impacts of migration, and how those impacts are mediated and politicised.

This event is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences. ESRC is part of UK research and Innovation, a new body which works in partnership with universities, research organisations, businesses, charities, and government to create the best possible environment for research and innovation to flourish.
