"Transnational Migration, Citizenship and the Circulation of Rights and Responsibilities"

Objective

"This ITN TRANSMIC project brings together a group of universities, think-tanks, institutes, practitioners and high-level officials that all share a long-term interest in migration policies and citizenship issues and who have extensive academic and/or practical expertise in this field. Their inter- and multi-disciplinary knowledge and experience is pooled with the main objective of improving the European and international career opportunities of young researchers by offering them a coherent academic training programme complemented with a professional skills training programme and by exposing them to experience on the work-floor through an internship at a think-tank, a consultancy or a law firm, all specialized in the issue of migration and citizenship issues. In addition the network will also be a catalyst for intensive cooperation and exchange of best practices amongst the participating partners and promote interaction and fertilization between academia, professional organizations, representatives of European institutions and member States as well as policy makers in various countries of research all around the globe with an interest in transnational migration and citizenship questions. Given the intensity of the cooperation, it is to be expected that the network will also provide a solid basis for cooperation and interaction beyond ITN.

The focus of the research is the rapidly-evolving field of transnational migration and citizenship addressed from the perspective of circularity of rights and responsibilities. The in-depth and inter-/multi-disciplinary study of the concept of transnational migration, citizenship and related problems concerning the mobility of migrants from a comparative and rights-based perspective is extremely topical in the light of the current political and academic debates concerning circular migration, mobility partnerships, high- and low skilled migration. These debates are directly connected with the concepts and positions taken towards acquired rights, citizenship and nationality. These research issues also contribute to our broader understanding of the origins, evolution and effects of migration movements for the host as well as the home societies."
