Call for Papers on Migration and Social Policy in Post-Soviet Countries


The collapse of the USSR has created a whole new migration situation in the post-Soviet space. These new independent states have been included in global migration processes both as a source of migrants (Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan) and as a destination for immigrants (Russia, Kazakhstan). Over time, types of migration, the causes, the size of migration flows, and the composition of immigrants changed significantly.

The special issue is under supervision of Dr. Olga R. Gulina, (RUSMPI – Institute on Migration Policy) and Dr. Irina Lapshyna, The University of Oxford's Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS)

Governance and Citizenship, March 12-14, 2015

The Center for the Study of Citizenship invites proposals for its 2015 annual conference that explore the many dimensions of the theme of governance and citizenship.  The affordances of citizenship are bound in many ways to structures of governance that provide and at the same time deny access to power. While formal structures of governance establish rights and responsibilities, there are many additional informal forms of governance people use to orchestrate and affirm their community membership, among them are civic organizations, community groups, and NGOs.

Abstracts of no more than 500 words are welcomed for consideration. Proposals, along with a short biography (50 words), should be submitted in one file to the Center no later than October 15, 2014. For more information contact Helen Callow at
