August 2015 Theme 2

Theme 2 - Inclusion & Exclusion

All members of the Theme 2 participated in the second part of the MCN Film School, which took place in May at the Central Eastern European University in Budapest. Under the supervision of professional filmmakers Klara Trencsenyi, Vlad Naumescu and Šimon Špidla they edited earlier collected footage and eventually created five short documentaries on varieties of migrants’ experiences. The working versions of the videos were already screened at the end of the school, and the final versions are going to be shown during the forthcoming ChangingEmployment Annual Colloquium in Glasgow. Moreover, the Film School was another opportunity to strengthen the cooperation with the members of INTEGRIM ITN.

Besides that, most of Theme’s ESRs are currently working on the papers for the 12th Annual Conference of the European Sociological Association which will be hold in August 2015 in Prague. Proposed by Theme 2 panel “Inclusion, Exclusion and Precarious Employment of Migrant Workers in Europe” has been accepted and there were 24 submissions. Ultimately, on the 28th of August, 8 papers will be presented in the two consecutive sessions, which will be chaired by Prof. Paul Stewart and Dr Olena Fedyuk. The conference programme can be found here

Last but not least, the Theme 2 continues working on the common book, which will be edited by Olena. Some of the book chapters have already been submitted and are under revision. The next stage of this project is the October workshop at Ross Priory which will include the external contributors and three experts. The workshop is supposed to end with the recorded discussion and later on a chapter concluding the whole book.
