    The European Migration Crisis: The EU-Mali Cooperation Agreement and Political Protest of Civil Society in Bamako, Mali

    This presentation will look at the construction of the European migration policy, its implementation through the negotiations of a EU-Mali cooperation agreement and the political protest of civil society in Bamako. This will be looked at with the aim of understanding how a European policy participates to shape the migratory field in Mali, as well as the effects and the resistances that this one generates among migrants, Malian civil society organizations and their transnational networks, as well as among political and state actors with regard to the social, political and economic changes having occurred these last years in West Africa.

    Migration - the World in Motion

    Uppsala University's Regional Studies centres and fora invite to a thematic day on igration.Humans have been on the move since we left African continent thousands of years ago.

How have Muslims ended up in the Baltic countries? How does migration look like between Mexico and USA? Where and why does one move in China? How are the concepts of mobility, migration and security re­flected in Arabic literature? How has immigra­tion from Turkey affected language policies in Europe? What role does sport play in identity building within the diaspora of Southeast Asia?
