The Annual Conference of the INTEGRIM initiative addresses empirical and conceptual opportunities and recent explorations in understanding how migration flows, policies, and debates relate, move, reveal or clash with other important discords in society. Competitive, cooperative, transformative, or mutually constitutive relations of marked ruptures in society will be explored and explained. Further, the field of migration studies has obvious cross-currents with interdisciplinary scholarship on social inequalities, regimes of citizenship, practices of social exclusion and inclusion, and other key concepts capturing pronounced or disguised social ruptures. Similar types of encounters characterize the field of Romani Studies, whereas the two fields have generated only thin crosscurrents until now. The host institution of the conference, the Central European University is deeply interested in promoting academic conversations across these two fields of studies and facilitating encounters of these two disjointed scholarly communities.
