The Sheffield Methods Institute (SMI) is launching a conference with partners from Faculty of Social Science Migration Research Group and Applied Quantitative Methods Network (AQMeN) on 12th & 13th October at Culter's Hall, Sheffield.

The international and interdisplinary conference will look at the key questions around international migration in relation to urban development, residential segregation and diversity. Migrants in the city will explore relationships between rapid urbanisation and international migration and how that in turn effects social issues like segregation, climate change, economic restructuring and spatial identity.
