On the 7th-9th of July, the University of Luxembourg and the IMISCOE network are organising the 18th Annual IMISCOE Conference in an online format.

This year, the event focuses on taking a deeper dive into the COVID-19 impacts on migration, culture and language, bringing to the forefront people’s stories and experiences.

The FUME project will participate in the conference hosting a session titled “Multi-method approaches in migration scenarios” on the second day of the event, July 8th, between 08:00 and 09:30 am.

The panel will focus on four scientific papers and work done within the FUME project. FUME partners will discuss and analyze the challenges of multi-method approaches. Some of the hurdles when combining and blending methods as diverse as interview-based case studies, demographic cohort-component projection methods, work with novel data sources (e.g. social media), Delphi studies, and methods based on machine learning.

FUME representatives Carsten Keßler (Aalborg University, Denmark) and Karolina Sobczak-Szelc (Cracow University of Economics, Poland) will act as chairs of the session. Tuba Bircan (Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium), coordinator of the HumMingBird Project, will join the panel as a discussant.
