1. Symposium: “Feedback: The Impact of Migration to the Middle East on Sending Countries”, Paris, 7 September 2012

Symposium organised by the CERI Research Group on "The relations between the Gulf Countries and South Asia" and SYSREMO-Université Rennes.
This one-day workshop will focus on the consequences of migration to Middle East in sending countries. Drifting away from the general approach to the economic consequences[1] of migration on sending country, it aims at exploring the cultural, political, sociological as well as the political economy of the « return effect » of people’s mobility towards one of the migration-intensive region of the world.

O The political economy of migration to the Middle East: migrant owned businesses, sectors of the economy concerned by migrants’ investments and activities, remittances and their impact (productive investment, real estate etc.) O Transnational political practices: political consequences of migration through the analysis of voting practices, political leaders from the diaspora, leverage of migrant community on politics back home O The social and cultural change induced by migration in societies of origin: gender relations, cultural (popular and high culture) and educational changes, religious practices etc.

The purpose of the workshop is to draw upon current empirical research in migrants countries of origin in order to give an accurate account of the consequences of migration to the Middle East.

5. Encyclopaedia Iranica Crowdsourcing Projects

This spring the editorial staff of the Encyclopaedia Iranica (EIr) took a close look at the Islamic Studies crowdsourcing projects at the University of Michigan Library and at the Chester Beatty Library Dublin and developed its own crowdsourcing project: All entries of the EIr, are available for free at www.iranicaonline.org. But since the EIr's move to its current site in spring 2010, there are still many broken links to the EIr in Wikipedia entries, and so readers cannot find cross-referenced EIr entries.

More information is available on the website of Columbia's Center for Iranian Studies:
http://cfis.columbia.edu/event/encyclopaedia-iranica-crowdsourcing-project

For questions and comments, we have opened an activity page about the project on the EIr's Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/events/180907358706406/
