The 13th IMISCOE Conference welcomes contributions from scholars in various disciplines and on all aspects of migration, integration and ethnic studies. The migration-development nexus has been a part of migration studies for many years. Alongside issues directly in the migration field it also touches on a number of more general subjects such as the polarization of the world, global diversity issues, socio-economic inequalities, cultural changes, and more, which are relevant to a number of social science disciplines.
