Ensuring comparability in cross-national research on migration

​Migration research benefits from comparative analyses across countries, communities or groups. But comparability can be a vexing issue, in both methodological and conceptual terms. Join us for a discussion on 25 May 13.00 - 14.30 CET.

In this webinar we draw upon the challenges encountered and lessons learned in cross-national research projects. The event is organised by:

- MIGNEX, which carries out mixed-methods data collection in 25 local areas across 10 countries in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.

- TRAFIG, which investigate long-lasting displacement situations at multiple sites in Asia, Africa and Europe and analyse options to improve displaced people’s lives.

MAGYC, which is conducting comparative, multi-level analysis of the dynamics of South-South migration flows in key sending regions of migration to the EU.

Moderation:
Dr Ayşen Üstübici, Assistant Professor in the Department of International Relations and Department of Sociology at Koç University and researcher on the MIGNEX project.

Panel
Dr Lea Müller-Funk, Research Fellow at GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies  and researcher on the MAGYC project.
