JPI Urban call on urban migration now open
JPI Urban Europe is now inviting transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral communities of researchers and practitioners to create projects that align, synthesise or consolidate already existing knowledge on urban migration across disciplines on national and local levels. The results from projects granted in this call should help to facilitate knowledge transfer and learning from different European contexts, cities and countries to create greater engagement and understanding in migrant as well as host communities.
The focus of this call is the ways that migration affects and is affected by the life and functioning of cities. As JPI Urban Europe aims for a broad scrutiny of urban migration, proposals submitted to this call should focus on one, many or a mix of migration types, categorized based on the following three principles (World Economic Forum, 2017):
> By political boundaries (internal vs. international migration)
> By movement patterns (step, circular or chain migration) or
> By taking a decision-making approach (voluntary vs. involuntary migration)
With this call, JPI Urban Europe aims to create a transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral community of researchers, practitioners and engaging migrant communities working in the field of urban migration, who can align, synthesise, consolidate, and learn from each other. Further, to develop common insights and understandings on the selected topics of the call as well as bring together already existing knowledge on migration across disciplines on national and local level. The results from projects granted in this call should help to facilitate knowledge transfer and learning from different contexts, cities and countries to create greater engagement and understanding in migrant as well as host communities.
