ANN: New East European Migration Listserv

East European Migration is concerned with migration to, from or within
Eastern Europe from an East European perspective both now and in the past.
It is intended to be a counterweight to the dominance of Western interests
in discussion of migration within Europe. Eastern Europe is considered as
the entire area east of 1989 boundaries, and thus includes states that
joined the EU on 1 May 2004 and the 'new' German Länder, candidate states,
those aspiring to be, and those further east.

The list's purpose is to be a source of information and communication among
researchers on East European migration. Members are asked to contribute
announcements about publications (reports, journal articles, books), data
sources, websites, immigration legislation that affects East Europeans,
information from elsewhere in the world when it is particularly relevant,
and about conferences, seminars. Members are particularly encouraged to
contribute bibliographies of their own work and work that has been done in
their own countries or their own fields of interest. These will be stored
in the list's Archive, which will become an online resource.

Once the list is established it is expected there will be on average 2 or 3
postings in a week. On joining, or at any time, members who prefer not to
receive e-mails may elect not to receive them but they may still send
information to the list and consult the archive whenever they want to.
Information for the list may also be sent by non-members to the moderator,
Beryl Nicholson, at beryl6b at yahoo.co.uk.  with 'For East European
Migration' in the subject line.

Messages may be posted in any language. They must only contain text and no
attachments are allowed.

Contributors are requested to bear in mind that some members may have
limited internet access, and to avoid sending excessively large messages.

Individuals with a professional interest in migration who agree with the
list's purpose may join the list. These include, but are not limited to
researchers in universities (including research students) and research
institutes, think tanks and government, serious independent scholars (e.g.
who publish and are active in research networks), and journalists with a
special interest in migration. Membership is not limited to citizens or
residents of East European states.

This is a closed list, members must be approved by the moderator. To join
send a short introduction stating your interest in the group to
