- Warsaw, University of Warsaw, Main Campus, Ball Room, Tyszkiewicz‐Potocki Palace, Poland

The special focus will be given to social change and social remittances at macro, meso and micro levels, both in relation to mobile and sedentary populations. The conference, among other issues, will address: how to filter effects of migration from other social processes; what role does migration play in cultural diffusion; how to research social remittances; how to explain resistance to social remittances; what is novel in the case of social remittances from the perspective of Central European countries which have just completed their economic, political and social transitions.[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
