14th IMISCOE Annual Conference (Rotterdam, June 28-30, 2017)

Cities are often the main ports of entry for migration and the location where migration-related diversity is manifested most prominently. The 14th annual conference turns attention to the urban dimension of migration and migration-related diversity. The conference with the theme 'Migration, Diversity and the City' will take place in Rotterdam (June 28-30, 2017).

What implications does migration have for the city and for urban life, how can cities respond to both the challenges and opportunities offered by migration and diversity?

We welcome contributions from various disciplines, such as political science, sociology, economics, history, law, anthropology, public administration, demography and social geography. It is possible to submit individual papers, panel proposals and workshops (all sessions will each be assigned 90 minutes).

The forms for submitting a proposal can be found in the "user menu" once logged on (see upper right corner of your screen; next to the search field). Please note:

  • Submissions of paper proposals should include a 250 word abstract. The IMISCOE conference committee will propose thematic panels based on the individual paper submissions that are accepted for presentation.
  • Submissions for workshop proposals should include a max. 400 word overview of the rationale of the workshop
  • Proposals for a research panel should consist of 3 or 4 coherent and related papers. Submissions should include a 250 word abstract of the theme of the research panel, the author names, title and a max. 250 word abstract per paper.
