Third Annual Conference of the Western Balkans Migration Network


"A SEARCH FOR THAT SPECIAL PLACE UNDER THE SUN IN MODERN EUROPE: MIGRATION IN THE TWENTY FIRST CENTURY"
ZAGREB, MAY 25–26, 2018


The Institute of Economics, Zagreb, a member of WB-MIGNET, in cooperation with University College Effectus for Law and Finance and The Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies, is organizing the third Western Balkans Migration Conference to be held in Zagreb on May 25–26, 2018.

The countries of Southeast Europe have a long tradition of migration flows related to political or economic reasons. In addition to the migration issues related to their home population, recently they have found themselves on the migratory route for significant numbers of refugees and asylum seekers seeking a way to Western Europe. This movement has brought many challenges and uncertainties in its wake, together with a wide range of popular, policy and political responses. The aim of the conference is to bring together scholars, policy-makers and advocates in order to create a forum for the exchange of knowledge and discussion of the issues that surround contemporary migration research and policy in and of the region; to challenge existing models and discourses for understanding migration; to address current policy challenges; and to offer solutions which result in the more humane treatment of migrants and the promotion of mobility.
