Lisbon, 2-6 October 2006
The theme of this year's conference is "Paths & Crossroads: Moving People, Changing Places". People on the move grow increasingly diverse, and so do the routes, processes and places involved. For this reason, the 11th International Metropolis Conference intends to provide a forum to foster the exchange of knowledge and encourage dialogue among specialists and decision-makers from places that send and receive migrants.
Steven Vertovec will be convening the workshop 'Shaping Research-Policy Strategies: National Experiences' on the migration research-policy nexus. Hein de Haas and Oliver Bakewell from IMI will hold a workshop on 'Migration Reshaping the Landscape of Development: Bridging the Theory-Practice Gap'.
