Call for paper - International Conference on Honour Related Conflicts

Intercultural Challenges and Cross-Border Dynamics in Immigrant Integration

In collaboration with Danish researchers, the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration will host a conference on the 22nd and 23rd of November 2018 in Copenhagen. Participation will be free of charge.

To strengthen the overall research field, the conference strives to increase focus on honour related issues as topic across disciplines. The goal of the conference is to open up new lines of research through gathering researchers and scholars from all of Northern Europe. We therefore encourage researchers with both thorough and marginal acquaintance with the research area to attend the conference.
