12th IMISCOE annual conference

From June 25th to June 27th was held the 12th IMISCOE annual conference in Geneva.

Our team took this opportunity to organise a panel on the theme “Children of refugees”.

With Catherine Wihtol de Wenden (Sciences Po Paris) as Chair person and Maurice Crul (Erasmus University Rotterdam and Free University of Amsterdam) as discussant, each team presented some insight from the fieldwork :

  • The Swiss children of refugees : Transnational but not cosmopolitan ? ( Milena Chimienti, Anne-Laure Counilh and Laurence Ossipow, University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland, Geneva)
  • School inclusion and exclusion:  Experiences of second generation from refugee backgrounds in London (Alice Bloch and Shirin Hirsh, University of Manchester)
  • Political Engagement among the Kurdish-Turk Refugees in France (Giovanna Tattolo and Catherine Wihtol de Wenden, Sciences Po Paris)
