The final conference of the IS Academy: Migration and Development project will be hosted in Maastricht, the Netherlands from 22-24 January 2014 by Maastricht University and the Maastricht School of Management. The conference will share the results of the analysis of the IS Academy: Migration and Development Project data, and examine other results and analysis from other research around the world.

Papers will be presented on a range of migration and development issues, particularly on the determinants and consequences of remittances from highly skilled migration and permanent, temporary and circular migration (programs). Other topics include: migrant entrepreneurship; effects of migration on those left behind; immigrant integration processes; diasporas and transnationalism; forced migration, repatriation and reintegration; migration policies and social protection; methodological issues in migration research. We invite both thematic and country specific papers. We will also be organizing sessions focused on Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Burundi, Morocco and the Netherlands. Download the tentative schedule
