Migration and settlement of immigrants: Seminar with Professor Marinius Penninx

On Thursday October 31, 10-12, Misum is hosting a seminar with Professor Emeritus Marinius Penninx. He is invited by our sustainable tourism-project. The seminar is a research seminar open for all, and will take place in the Misum meeting room, Holländargatan 32, floor 8.

​Rinus Penninx is emeritus professor of Ethnic Studies of the University of Amsterdam. He has been involved in the field of migration and settlement of immigrants in several capacities. His report Ethnic Minorities (1979) formed the starting point for integration policies in the Netherlands. From 1978 to 1988, he worked in Dutch Ministries in research and policy making on integration of immigrants in the Netherlands. In 1993 he founded the Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies at the University of Amsterdam and was its director until 2005. From 1999 to 2009, he was co-chair of the International Metropolis project. He was also coordinator of the IMISCOE Network of Excellence (2004-2009) and the IMISCOE Research Network (2009-2014). He formally retired from the University of Amsterdam in 2011 but is still a guest researcher there. His major publications in English include Newcomers: Immigrants and Their Descendants in the Netherlands 1550-1995 (with Jan Lucassen, 1997), Immigrant Integration: The Dutch Case (with Hans Vermeulen, 2000), Citizenship in European Cities (with Karen Kraal, Marco Martiniello and Steve Vertovec, 2004), The Dynamics of International Migration and Settlement in Europe (with Maria Berger and Karen Kraal, 2006), Migration Policymaking in Europe (with Giovanna Zincone and Maren Borkert, 2011), Integrating Immigrants in Europe: Research-Policy Dialogues (with Peter Scholten, Han Entzinger and Stijn Verbeek, 2015), and Integration Processes and Policies in Europe (with Blanca Graces-Mascarenas 2016). His most recent book publication is Trade Unions and Migrant Workers – New Contexts and Challenges in Europe (with Stefania Marino and Judith Roosblad, 2017).
