  1. Seminar by our PhD group on the use of mobile phone data for migration research.

This PhD group meeting will focus on the use of mobile phone data (MPD) for migration research. With the increasing amount of data being generated every day by individuals through their interactions with mobile phones, social media, and other digital platforms, policy makers are recognizing the potential of big data sources to complement traditional data sources and contribute to evidence-based policy making.

  1. Seminar on Urban Food Justice and the Immigrant-Food Nexus with prof. Julian Agyeman.

How can food inform us about the everyday lives, agency and well-being of urban residents with a migration background in Dutch and European cities? Research on urban foodscapes in the Netherlands and other continental European countries mainly focuses on the potential of ‘local’, ‘sustainable’ and ‘alternative’ food systems, foodways and initiatives. While professor Agyeman has extensively addressed the intersections between race, class and sustainability in his research on urban foodscapes in U.S. cities, these critical intersections are often overlooked in urban food research in European countries.

What can and should be expected from refugees, and what tools are needed to facilitate their integration?
