The conveners of the International Politics of Migration, Refugees, and Diasporas (IPMRD) Working Group are calling for nominations for several positions within the group:

  1. Chair
  2. Secretary
  3. Treasurer
  4. Postgraduate committee member
  5. Website and newsletter coordinator

During the past four years the working group has grown significantly, which has given rise to the need for the two additional officers (ordinary members) - the postgraduate committee member (to serve for one year) and the website and newsletter coordinator.

With the exception of the postgraduate committee member, all positions will be for the period 2020-2022 and elections will be conducted during the group's virtual Annual Business Meeting (ABM) on Thursday 30 July 2020, for which registration will open shortly and a link added to this page.

This is an exciting opportunity to take forward an active working group whose primary aim is to discuss issues of migration and international politics.
