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 Lisbon, Portugal from 26 to 28 June 2018. The Conference will be 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.
ISEG, University of Lisbon
IGOT, University of Lisbon

The conference will host about 100 parallel sessions and several keynote speakers. The speakers for plenaries will be announced in due course, but surely distinguished scholars of the field will appear as was the case in previous conferences, where Douglas Massey, Saskia Sassen, Oded Stark, Giuseppe Sciortino, Caroline Brettell, Barry Chiswick, and Karen Phalet appeared.
Conference venue is ISEG (School of Economics and Management) at University of Lisbon in Portugal's capital. The central location is just paces away from beautiful Tagus river and many museums and attractions within short distance. Directions to the campus can be found here.
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 Lisbon in June 2018 !

Prof Ibrahim Sirkeci (Regent's University), Prof João Peixoto (ISEG, University of Lisbon), Prof Maria Lucinda Fonseca (IGOT, University of Lisbon), Prof Jeffrey Cohen (Ohio State University), Prof Philip Martin (University of California, Davis), Prof Gudrun Biffl (Danube University, Krems).
