"East West Migration - Contexts and Perspectives"
Centre for Migration Studies at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (CeBAM)
Viadrina Center B/ORDERS IN MOTION, European University Viadrina
Within the complex net of East-West and West-East migrations, Poland and Germany are important countries. These networks of mobile people, ideas and material goods tell histories of industrialization and nation-building, of war and occupation, deportation and resettlement, and economic migration. The migratory pathways between Poland and Germany connect not only migration in-between Western, Eastern and Southern Europe, but are also connected to the Global South.
During the workshop, colleagues from the Viadrina Center B/ORDERS IN MOTION and the CeBAM Poznan exchanged upon the state of the art of migration scholarship at our respective centers, and presented ongoing research projects. Furthermore, we investigated conceptual and methodological approaches within the multidisciplinary Polish and German migration studies. What are classical paradigms within migration research within the respective contexts, how are East-West migrations conceptually connected to a broader understanding of migration? What are the contributions of recent scholarship discussing migration through critical race and decolonial perspectives? What new global migration pathways have developed over the last years and after the Russian attack on Ukraine?
