"Internal migrants. Governance and collective trajectories of migrants from the French overseas departments".

The objective of the seminar is to present research on migration in the French overseas territories. It will also focus on the post-colonial dimension of these migrations.

"The Law of Foreigners, the Law of the Foreigner - Analysis of Legal Perspectives through Case Studies"

Through case studies presented by MITRA students, the aim is to analyse the perspectives of the development of the law on foreigners and the law of foreigners. The analysis is based on increasingly complex and sometimes contradictory legal frameworks. It also allows us to report on particular facts characterising, in a general way, contemporary migrations and sheds light on the public policies that seek to regulate them.

BELMIX Workshop
"Situated mixedness: Understanding intimate diversity in contemporary Belgium

In recent years, Belgium has witnessed an increase in the phenomenon of mixed marriage, involving Belgian citizens and people from outside the European Union. In order to understand this phenomenon, it is necessary to situate it within broader social processes and multi-level contexts. This paper presents a number of case studies on marital mixing, some of which present the empirical results of an ongoing study on Belgian-Asian couples.
