Harokopio University

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the The Migration Conference Organizing Committee we cordially invite you to the 5th conference in the series which will take place in Athens from 23 to 26 August 2017. 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.

The conference will start with the Opening Plenary in the late afternoon of June xx. We will announce the speakers for plenaries in due course, but surely distinguished scholars of the field will appear as was the case in previous conferences, where Douglas Massey, Gudrun Biffl, Caroline Brettell, Barry Chiswick, Philip Martin, Jeffrey Cohen, Ibrahim Sirkeci, Karen Phalet have spoken.

Conference venue will be the downtown campus of Harokopio University in Greece's capital Athens. The spacious courtyards and foyer in and around the University buildings will provide a pleasant surrounding for exchanges during the conference.

The city centre of Athens with its historical buildings, museums and exhibitions is a few paces away from the conference venue.

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 Athens in August 2017 !

Prof Ibrahim Sirkeci and Prof Apostolos Papadopoulos

Conference Chairs on behalf of the TMC Conference Executive Committee
