2-4 July 2018, Barcelona.- The 2018 IMISCOE Annual Conference will take place in Barcelona, 2 – 4 July 2018. The conference covers the theme Europe, migrations and the Mediterranean: human mobilities and intercultural challenges and will be organized by Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona.
The Union for the Mediterranean is a partner of Pompeu Fabra University, through the GRITIM-UPF research group, in the organisation of the 15th IMISCOE Annual Conference (International Migration, Integration and Social Cohesion), the biggest network of researchers in Europe in the field of migration and integration.
The aim of the Conference, already open for registrations, is to create synergies between the experts that facilitate the development of public research programmes and policies on migration in the Mediterranean. It also aims to highlight the geographical dimension of migration and approach human mobilities as a reality, a resource and an opportunity to connect societies and cities in this area.
Aiming to put forwards young views on migration and to bring together perspectives from all of the Mediterranean, the Union for the Mediterranean is sponsoring the participation of highly skilled PhD Students and/or junior researchers to the Conference, offering them the opportunity to attend the three-day conference and to promote knowledge exchanges and networking opportunities.
