Conference on Gender Equality – with the participation of CIR

During the „Gender Equality” conference, CIR’s expert, prof. Krystyna Iglicka, moderated the panel on migration. She highlighted the growing role of Norway as a country to which Poles are increasingly willing to emigrate. It is in fact in 4th place after the UK, Germany and the Netherlands. One of the projects presented was the TRANSFAM project: „Doing family in transnational context. Demographic choices, welfare adaptations, school integration and everyday life of Polish families living in Polish-Norwegian transnationality”.

The project, funded by Norway Grants,  focused on studying transnational migrations and „creating families” by Poles in Norway. CIR and its partners from the Polish-Norwegian consortium (Jagiellonian University, Agder Research, Nova) have started the project in July 2013 and it will last till June 2016. During the conference, it was introduced by Paula Pustułka from the Jagiellonian University.
