On conferences: PREMIG

On 20-21 August 2015, I attended the final conference of PREMIG: Thinking about going ‘home’: engaging with scenarios of return migration held at PRIO.

From the conference page,

The possibility of one day returning to one’s country of origin is a fact of life for international migrants. Some live in fear of deportation; others have a dream about retiring in their native country. This conference addresses the different ways in which migrants think, feel, and act upon the possibility of return.

The conference is organized on the occasion that the project Possibilities and Realities of Return Migration (PREMIG) is entering its final stages. The project is led by the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) and funded by the Research Council of Norway.
