This International Workshop puts a focus on situations of intense entanglement between migration and education. Both notions are understood in a large sense: migration including temporary migration, education including all-sided education - to a citizen of a certain type, to a certain "civilized" behaviour - beyond formalized education or training. In this wide understanding, potentially enter all forms of educational and of labour migration. The State (or International Organization or Non-State Organization or Party) enters as a provider of education. We aim at situations in which the intervention of such actors aim at the education of temporary migrants, in which migration is seen as a chance for transforming the individual. We also ask for educational and "civilizing" concepts put into motion by these flows of migration. We focus on organized - framed by States or organizations - and temporary forms of migration. We aim at the post-colonial era, the period of system competition, with a special focus on the Socialist World System. We may also integrate flash-backs into anterior periods featuring formative elements for the scrutinized constellations of Migration, Education, Labour and the State.
