IMISCOE Annual Conference 2018

20 April 2018

The Mediterranean lies at the heart of migration studies in Europe and, currently, it is a focal point of large-scale human displacement. This is both a global and a local challenge with major effects on origin and destination countries in terms of society and politics, and with important implications for border and diversity policies, and geopolitical strategies.
The 2018 IMISCOE Annual Conference raises the theme “Europe, migrations and the Mediterranean: human mobilities and intercultural challenges” and will take place in Barcelona (July 2-4, 2018).

We welcome contributions from various disciplines, theoretical and empirically oriented, case-studies and comparative research, micro/meso and macro levels of analysis. We also encourage proposals to be interdisciplinary, intergenerational and gendered.

It is no longer possible to submit proposals.
