Workshop "Return and Labour Migration in Central and Eastern Europe after 1989"

07 March 2018 - Leibniz Institutes IAMO and GWZO are extending an invitation to attend a workshop on “Migration in Central and Eastern Europe since 1989”. Venue: GWZO in Specks Hof, Leipzig

The Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Transition Economies (IAMO) and the Leibniz Institute for the History and Culture of Eastern Europe (GWZO) will hold a joint workshop on "Return and Labour Migration in Central and Eastern Europe since 1989” on Wednesday, 7 March 2018 at the GWZO in Leipzig. The event will focus on the economic, social and political motivations of migrants and returnees, a topic that has become increasingly important over the years.

Three lectures will be held under the moderation of Dr Dietmar Müller (GWZO). Joyce Bromley (Madison WI, USA) will present her research on farm managers who were expelled or fled after 1945, and who (or their children) resumed agricultural production in their homeland after 1989. Dr Robert Nadler (Research Institute for Regional and Urban Development, Dortmund) will provide information on his research project on return migration patterns in East Germany and other Central and Eastern European countries over the last two decades, which he coordinated at the Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography in Leipzig (IFL). Dr Alina Tofan (University of Leipzig) will analyse the impact of labour migration on the remaining population in the Republic of Moldova, a country that is extremely affected by labour migration to other European countries.
