ZOiS Research Colloquium

Negotiating ‘labour migration’: Competing political projects of postsocialist development

Julia Glathe (Free University, Berlin)

Julia Glathe examines political debates on immigration in post-Soviet Russia and shows how the social construction of immigration as a political issue is related to questions of economy, identity and morality in a globalized world. The empirical analysis focuses on the Russian expert discourse.

ZOiS Research Colloquium

As of the winter semester 2020, the Centre for East European and International Studies (ZOiS), in cooperation with the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Europa-Universität Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), is opening invitations to a new multidisciplinary research colloquium. The colloquium is to serve as a discussion forum for work in progress by PhD candidates, postdocs, and established researchers whose work in the social sciences focuses on Eastern Europe. With this colloquium, the aim is to establish a permanent meeting point in the Berlin-Brandenburg area for those engaged in research on Eastern Europe. The research colloquium will take place online every second Wednesday at 5pm in the months during the semester. We will send the access data shortly before the beginning of each session.

If you wish to participate, please register with Anja Krüger (events(at)zois-berlin(dot)de).
