Masterclass for PhD and Early Career Researchers: “Interdisciplinary approach to complex policy issues: A case of migration-development nexus”

Thursday 19th April 2018, The University of Sheffield

We are pleased to announce that Professor Izabela Grabowska from the University of Warsaw will deliver a two-hour masterclass to PhD students and early career researchers entitled, “Interdisciplinary approach to complex policy issues: A case of migration-development nexus” on the afternoon of Thursday 19th April 2018.

The masterclass will provide a valuable opportunity for PhD students and early career researchers working on migration research to learn about interdisciplinary approaches to complex policy issues with a leading migration scholar. This masterclass will be especially beneficial to those working on any aspect of migration and/ or development issues.

The masterclass is supported by the Noble Foundation and is part of the ‘Modern Poland’ project, which is a collaboration between leading scholars from the Migration Research Group at the University of Sheffield and the Centre for Migration Research at the University of Warsaw.

There are limited spaces, so early registration is advised.

Objectives of the Master Class:

  • To use the theme of migration and development to showcase the interdisciplinary and complex policy areas;
  • To link migration with wider social issues;
  • To learn how to form interdisciplinary and mixed-method approaches to policy challenges, including collaborations both on the science and the policy sides, as well as across this divide;
  • To exemplify the benefits of mixed-method approaches in order to understand how to manage knowledge for policy and how to deal with knowledge overload.
