Thomas Faist’s seminar “A Transnational Approach to Migration: Concepts and Methodology” serves as an introduction to the transnational approach in migration studies.

The aim of the Forum is to develop and intensify the collaboration in migration research at Stockholm University by introducing an interdisciplinary PhD course on transnational migration and a high-profiled seminar series on the same theme.

The Forum will have a particular focus on refugee migration and how the migration routes develop and are organized in relation to border-regimes and governmental control. It is a collaboration between researchers in the Department of Social Anthropology and the Department of History and is funded by the strategic action of Områdesnämnden för humanvetenskap at Stockholm University.
