The International Conference on Migration, Irregularisation and Activism is organised by a network of researchers, located in Sweden, focusing on processes of irregularisation, irregularity, migration and migrants’ social and political struggles. Many scholars in the network have a strong commitment to building bridges between the academy and civil society activism around these issues. Locally in Malmö, where the conference is taking place, there is a growing activism among antiracist and migration rights networks engaging in postcolonial and intersectional debates. People themselves subject to different forms of migration control are increasingly involved in these networks. To link the conference to these contexts we invite activists (irrespective of their academic affiliations) as well as researchers in order to create a space for mutually enriching knowledge exchange.
