      International Conference on

      New Perspectives on Albanian Migration and Development

      16 – 17 September 2004

      in

      Korçë, southern Albania


      Organisers: Russell King and Jenny Money
      Sussex Centre for Migration Research, University of Sussex


      SECOND CALL



      This is the second, and final, call for papers for the above conference.
      The first call was sent out on 24 February to about 65 people and was
      circulated on to many more. We have received a healthy response, but there
      is still time to volunteer a paper or poster presentation.

      The conference follows the success of an earlier conference on ‘Albanian
      Migration and New Transnationalisms’ held at the University of Sussex in
      September 2002. Several papers from this earlier conference have already
      been published [in a special issue of the Journal of Ethnic and Migration
      Studies, 29(6), 2003] or are about to be collected in a book due to be
      published by Sussex Academic Press at the end of this year. We will soon
      begin exploring options for publication of a selection of the papers from
      the Korçë conference.


      Abstracts

      The emphasis of the Korçë meeting will be on the interrelationships between
      migration and development in Albania. Papers are especially welcome on
      return migration, remittances, transnationalism, new mobility strategies,
      brain drain, migration policy, internal migration etc. However, papers on
      Albanian migrants’ experiences in various host societies are not excluded,
      especially where they present the results of new research.

      The closing date for receipt of Abstracts is 16 July. If you have already
      sent in an Abstract as a result of the first call, please confirm your
      intention of coming. The draft final programme will be sent out at the end
      of July. Please bring 30 copies of your paper to the conference for
      circulation.

      The conference will occupy the two full days of 16 and 17 September, so you
      should plan to arrive the day before, and leave the day after. Of course
      you can add some extra time for visiting Albania before and/or after!




      Accommodation

      Accommodation is very reasonably priced in Korçë. The full conference
      package – three nights’ single-room accommodation in the Kristal Hotel,
      plus all meals – is € 100.


      Travel to Korçë

      We are arranging transport by minibus (8-10 people) from Tirana (Rinas)
      International Airport, via the Rogner Hotel in Tirana, to Korçë, on
      Wednesday 15 September. The cost for the return trip will be € 20 per
      person, on the basis of a full complement of 8-10 people. The journey from
      the airport to Korçë is expected to take around 4.5 hours. Minibuses will
      probably leave from the airport in the late morning, and then again around
      mid-afternoon. You can either take the minibus from the airport, or make
      your own way to the Rogner Hotel Europapark, Deshmoret e Kombit, Tirana,
      and pick it up there... Please indicate on the Registration Form which
      option you would prefer, depending on your flight arrival/departure times.
      The minibuses will leave Korçë on Saturday 18 September in the early
      morning, and will again go, via the Rogner Hotel,Tirana, to Rinas Airport.

      For those of you who prefer to make your own way to Korçë from Tirana, or
      whose flights arrive at difficult times, here is an indication of costs for
      transfer by taxi:

      Transfer Rinas Airport to Tirana: € 16 per taxi (maximum 3 passengers +
      luggage)
      Transfer Rinas Airport to Korçë, or Tirana to Korçë: € 105 (max. 3
