The Swiss Chair of Mobility Studies is a one-semester visiting professorship. Invitees are outstanding scholars in the large field of the mobility of persons, ideas, and goods.
The Swiss Chair of Mobility Studies is involved in teaching and research. Teaching duties include two hours a week on Master of PhD level, taught at the hosting university. A conference or seminar will be held at each of the MOVE member universities. The focus, however, will be on research. The idea of the Chair is that the appointed professor will have ample time for his or her personal research (writing of a book for instance). Occasional participation in the research seminars of the network is encouraged. It is expected that the Chair contributes to an annual publication of the MOVE network.
