Abstract

Research on migration (both internal and external, voluntary and forced) has been an emergent domain in HCI and related disciplines over the past decade. However, as the number of migrants has been increasing over the last two decades, coupled with various growing global affairs, new challenges encountered by diverse types of migrants (e.g. international students, migrant workers) keep arising, and research on mobility gets entangled with many broader social and political issues. Hence, migration can no longer be considered as a ‘special case’ for some immigrant and refugee communities, but an everyday reality to hundreds of millions of people worldwide and across diverse socio-economic groups. Therefore, the objectives of this workshop are to (a) build a community with HCI researchers and practitioners involved in different domains, within and beyond migration, to share ideas and exchange expertise, (b) broaden the scope of HCI migration research and identify gaps within this field, and (c) provide a safe space for critical reflection on methodological approaches, research infrastructure, and space boundaries in relation with migration to achieve a better real-world impact.
