This academic workshop will focus on social inclusion, migration and volunteering in everyday contexts following micro-site research. We are interested in proposals from scholars who study integration narratives and how they contribute to the evolution of joint socio-spatial belongingness. Selected papers from this workshop will be submitted as an edited volume to IMISCOE book series.

The EC AMIF-funded VOLPOWER (http://www.volpower.eu) is a research project with a team composed of social scientists, geographers, sociologists, arts and sports researchers as well as stakeholders from the humanitarian sector. The project works with 42 young volunteers based in the UK, Italy, Austria, Croatia, Slovenia, Malta, and the Netherlands. The project is led by Glasgow Caledonian University with a team composed of Prof Umut Korkut, Dr Maggie Laidlaw, Marcus Nicolson and Doga Atalay. The project recently launched its digital exhibition entitled “Joint Narratives and Digitalised Aesthetics of Youth Volunteering” (http://www.volpower.eu/digital-exhibition/). Our website also lists a number of Volpower reports as well as results of our Volpower survey on migration and youth volunteering.
