From November 2 to 4, 2016 the ALUM autumn workshop “Bringing together Research and Practice” will be held at the University of Mannheim.

The Alliance of Leading Universities on Migration (ALUM) brings together academics from renowned international universities to work together to promote research on issues of migration, and facilitate contacts between academics and policymakers working on migration. The network aims to connect academics in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East and provide relevant knowledge and insights to political and civil society actors with regard to the following themes:
1) Understanding push and pull factors of migration flows;
2) Assessing the impact of emigration on origin countries;
3) Evaluating immigrant integration policies in host countries;
4) Assessing national and transnational challenges and coping strategies for migration and pathways towards a fairer allocation mechanism for refugees.
