2nd International Conference on Self-Initiated Expatriation
The 2nd International Conference on Self-Initiated Expatriation, organised by the University of Bamberg, will take place in presence in Bamberg, Germany, from the 11th to the 12th of April 2022.
As a follow-up to the 1st Conference on Self-Initiated Expatriation in Toulouse, this public event will address the careers of Self-Initiated Expatriates (SIEs), as well as the value these globally mobile individuals bring to companies and, more broadly, to host-country economies and societies.
The conference will include paper presentations followed by roundtables for discussion with audience members.
Anyone with interest in self-initiated expatriation from an individual, organisational or societal perspective is invited to submit their short paper (in English, 3,000 words and formatted as per APA style).
We welcome both (academic) research papers and (practitioner-focused) rapid evidence assessments.
Papers should include:
- A brief overview or abstract to be included in the conference programme (max 100 words)
- The aims and/or intended contributions of the study;
- An outline description of the theoretical framework and concepts;
- The research design and approach to data analysis (where applicable);
- The key findings, along with their theoretical and practical significance.
