NUS ARI CFP | Migrant-led Diversification and Differential Inclusion in Arrival Cities across Asia (Deadline Apr 30, 2019)

Organized by Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore, and supported by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Paper proposals might respond to the following questions in the context of arrival cities across Asia:

  • How do strategies of state actors and institutions sort, regulate, constitute, and set the terms of diversity?
  • How do these strategies constitute the politics of everyday coexistence in shared spaces?
  • What do these modes of migrant and diversity management mean for the figure of the migrant?
  • How do migrant groups respond to these wider state and/or municipal policies?
  • What form does difference take in the diversifying Asian city? What does different-making look like in the diversifying Asian city? Where are the borders located?
  • What are the implications of differential inclusion for belonging and citizenship?
