The human dimension of migrants’ stories represents one of the main sources of inspiration for this workshop. Young scholars of immigration studies - PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and researchers in the fields of law, sociology and humanities – have been invited to discuss the results of their researches with experts in the field. The workshop will revolve around two underlying themes: migration as "flight" and migration as "journey". These two themes are to be understood not only in a physical sense, considering migrants’ departure from their country of origin, but also in a metaphorical sense, looking at changes that occur in migrants’ life paths, in the “territories” of both the host country and the country of origin.

This workshop is part of the project “Living Integration Laws - Immigrant Care Workers between Social Biographies and Legal Careers”, funded by the University of Trento as a strategic research project. The research aims at the study of female migrations towards care work by mapping, through interviews, 250 adult women’s migratory paths and life stories. It is an interdisciplinary project involving members of the departments of Sociology, Law, Humanities and Cognitive Sciences of the University of Trento.
