Call for Proposals | CeMIS Migration and Intercultural Studies

Since 2017, CeMIS Migration and Intercultural Studies Series has published books at the Leuven University Press, on the topic of migration and intercultural studies, and related to research and networks of the CeMIS research centre.

The Centre for Migration and Intercultural Studies (CeMIS) was founded in 2005 at the University of Antwerp, at the initiative of a group of researchers who were working together within the framework of the Antwerp Centre for Migrant Studies. CeMIS is an interdisciplinary research centre that has received national and international praise for its work. The centre conducts research as well as providing education and other academic services relating to migration, integration, and intercultural themes in various social fields, including education, the labour market, welfare, family, health, and law.

Collaborating with civil society, policymakers, and other academic partners, the research centre addresses the challenges arising from migration and intercultural life in today’s society. CeMIS seeks to provide an open and pluralistic research platform that fosters collaboration between society and academia.

Call for proposals for edited volumes and books

CeMIS Migration and Intercultural Studies welcomes all edited volumes and books in line with their mission. CeMIS’ objective is to bring together the available research expertise within various disciplines and better understand the complexity of migration and intercultural coexistence. The centre wants to promote the understanding of the impact of migration and intercultural processes on daily life in a globalised and diverse society. CeMIS pursues this social objective with interdisciplinary, fundamental and applied scientific research and academic education.

The centre focuses on five major areas of research:
• Integration & Education
• Integration & Newcomers/Refugees
• Migration & Climate Change
• Migration & Refugees
• Migration & Digital Space

In addition, CeMIS provides a pluralistic and open platform for various stakeholders, such as universities and university colleges, governments and civil society, allowing them to establish a dialogue with a view to developing and acquiring science-based and policy-relevant insights into the themes of migration and integration.
