On behalf of the The Migration Conference Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to the 6th conference in the series which will take place in Bari, Italy from 18 to 20 June 2019. The Conference is a forum for discussion where experts, young researchers and students, practitioners and policy makers 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 migration, migrant populations, diasporas, migration policies, as well as non-migrants and wider impact of human mobility. The scientific programme will comprise invited talks, oral presentations, poster presentations as well as workshops. The conference will host about 150 parallel sessions and several keynote speakers joining us in plenary sessions.

Conference venue is Department of Political Science at the University of Bari Aldo Moro in Puglia’s capital. Located in South Italy, Bari is a coastal city with many attractions within short distance.

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 Bari, Italy in June 2019 !
