The 13th IMISCOE Annual Conference took place in Prague, 30 June – 2 July 2016. The conference covered the theme ‘Migration and Development’ and was organized by the Geographic Migration Centre (GEOMIGRACE) at Charles University in Prague.
The conference received more than 400 proposals. After a rigorous review, the Conference Committee (chaired by Dušan Drbohlav of GEOMIGRACE) has accepted about 200 proposals for 84 sessions, including research panels, policy workshops, book workshops and a number of working sessions for IMISCOE’s research clusters and standing committees.
You can download the conference booklet with the final program overview. Besides two keynote lectures (by Peggy Levitt and Ahmet İçduygu), the plenaries and the conference sessions, the conference hosted 3 semi-plenaries:
- Richard Alba and Nancy Foner: Comparing the Integration of Immigrants in North America and Western Europe
- Franck Düvell: Massive refugee influx, collapsed borders, and humanitarian crisis: Quo Vadis EU?
- Agata Górny: Central and Eastern Europe - duality of emigration and immigration regimes?
These were held on Friday July 1st, 13.30-15.00.
