The Migration Conference 2020 Call for Papers | Submission Deadline: 15 Jan. 2020
On behalf of The Migration Conference Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to the 8th conference in the series which will take place online despite being scheduled to be held in South East European University, Tetovo, North Macedonia from 8 to 11 September 2020. The Conference is a forum for discussion where experts, young researchers and students, practitioners and policymakers working in the field of migration are encouraged to exchange their knowledge and experiences in a friendly and frank environment.
The conference is organised in thematic streams of parallel sessions focusing on migration, migrant populations, diasporas, migration policies, labour migrations, refugees, economic impacts, remittances as well as non-migrants and the wider impact of human mobility on sending, transit and receiving societies. The scientific programme of TMCs usually comprises invited talks, oral presentations, poster presentations, exhibitions and workshops. The conference hosts about 150 parallel sessions and several distinguished keynote speakers joining us in intriguing plenary sessions.
The conference venue is South East European University, Tetovo, North Macedonia. The city of Tetovo and campus is about 45 minutes from the airport in capital Skopje. Tetovo is known for its ski resort and good for mountain hiking within a short distance to capital Skopje, N. Macedonia.
We are expecting an interesting and highly motivating meeting and would be happy if you participated in this conference.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Tetovo, N. Macedonia in September 2020!
