Call for Members of PhD Study Group

The sport and migration network invites all PhD students in the field of sport and migration to join the network and share information about their projects and ongoing work. To ensure that we are up to date with the latest research in sport and migration we have created a study group for PhD students. Contrary to becoming a full member of the sport and migration network, you do not need international publications to be a part of the PhD study group; all we ask for are that you have a project description and a willingness to contribute to the network.


Apply as a member of the PhD study group using the ‘apply for membership’-link on the bottom of the front page of sportmigration.au.dk or click Apply for membershiphere – remember to tick of the PhD study group box.


If you have any question fell free to address them to sportmigration@ph.au.dk

It serves as a great opportunity for members of the network to not only hear and learn about Tiesler's latest research but also present their research. The call for submission of abstracts is still open.
