Sociology of Migration Committee was established in 2019 as an initiative of Katarzyna Andrejuk and Aleksandra Winiarska. The rationale of the new Committee was a growing popularity of migration research among sociologists in Poland, which was reflected by a high number of papers submitted to the thematic session of the Sociological Congress in Wrocław (2019) “Durability and liquidity of international migration: circulation, settlement, integration of migrants”.
The Committee is a platform of discussion and exchange of information for migration researchers. Information about our meetings and other events related to migration studies are disseminated through the Committee’s Newsletter, as well as the Committee’s profile in social media.
Head of the Committee: Katarzyna Andrejuk (Institute of Philosophy and Sociology, Polish Academy of Sciences)
Deputy Head of the Committee: Marcin Gońda (University of Łódź)
Deputy Head of the Committee: Aleksandra Winiarska (University of Warsaw)
