Conference details

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: TUESDAY 29TH NOVEMBER 2019

Internal and international migration is at the center of global attention and created both scientific as well as political debates on the socio-economic impact of migrants on both sending and receiving regions. In line with the current scientific debate, this conference will bring together a range of international participants from different disciplines to present and debate their work in a welcoming, supportive and stimulating environment. Participants will be able to enrich their engagement with contemporary research in the field and share their learning.
