The Bucerius Ph.D. Scholarships in Migration Studies “Settling Into Motion”

Posted in News/Information, PhD Studentship by Pippa on January 13, 2009

The Bucerius Ph.D. scholarship program in migration studies “Settling  Into Motion” offers up to eight scholarships for Ph.D. theses  addressing migration in changing societies. For 2009 proposals studying “Migration, Development and the Environment” are especially welcome.

Migration is a double-edged sword: It generates remittances and some countries heavily depend on these transfers for their economic stability. At the same time, migration drains the highly qualified workforce in countries of origin thus weakening long-term development. Environmental degradation and climate change increasingly cause migration as exemplified by the plan of the Maldivian government to move its entire population should ocean levels rise further. On the other hand, large scale migration into camps and shanty towns further deteriorates the environment. Applications for scholarships under this topic would be encouraged to study the following aspects (but are not limited to these):

– Economic, social and cultural remittances
– Return migration
– Migration management including circular migration and other forms of temporary labour arrangements
– Immigration experiences of developing countries
– Migration-development nexus
– Climate change, environment and migration
– Environmental impact of migration
– Innovative approaches both in terms of subject matter and methodology are highly encouraged.

Applicants must be Ph.D. students of – in a broad sense – social sciences. Deadline 25 February 2009 for a stipend starting in August 2009.Please apply online at http://www.settling-into-motion.org/h/index.php  with Ph.D. proposal and two references.
