2-Day Workshop for Researchers in Social Sciences

Eurasia Partnership Foundation/Caucasus Research and Resources Centre (EPF/CRRC) and the International Centre for Migration Policy and Development (ICMPD) organized a 2-day workshop within the framework of the EU-funded MOBILAZE project.

Do you have a social phenomenon you want to investigate but you are not sure how? Would you like to learn how research can be used to help understand migration patterns in Azerbaijan and the wider region? Do you want to know about the tools you can use for empirical research to explore other areas?

30 successful applicants are invited to attend, where international migration experts and experienced researchers Roland Hosner and Dr. Michaella Vanore delivered a 2-day workshop from 10-11 October 2017. The sessions were interactive and will cover both quantitative and qualitative methods to explore a range of research questions, as well as a session designed to help you apply these methods to the issue of migration specifically.
