Koç University, Istanbul

Dear scholars, researchers, and practitioners,

We are delighted to announce the 20th Year of MiReKoc with a conference on “Mobilities and Immobilities in an Era of Polycrisis”, to be held in collaboration with 2024 IMISCOE Spring Conference, Europe’s leading network of migration scholars. This momentous occasion celebrates two decades of dedicated exploration and analysis of migration dynamics, offering an invaluable platform to reflect on our past achievements and chart a path towards a more inclusive and resilient future.

The conference will take place at Koç University, known for its unwavering commitment to academic excellence and cutting-edge research. From April 17-19, 2024, our gathering will bring together distinguished academics, policymakers, and practitioners from around the globe, providing an enriching opportunity for cross-disciplinary dialogue and collaborative knowledge exchange.

Elaborating on the term “polycrisis”, this international conference proposes to explore the impact of these multiple and overlapping crises on migration and mobility by focusing particularly on the above-introduced four crisis axes: politics, economics, health, and climateResearch that accounts for these multiple and overlapping crises will provide deeper insights into their impacts on migration and mobility. The conference aims to bring together academics from various disciplines and geographies with different methodological approaches to discuss these pressing issues. It seeks to foster a research agenda that embeds migration and mobility within current social transformations while acknowledging multiple crises we are going through. The conference aims to create a space for future-oriented dialogue and exchange among scholars.

This conference will be hybrid in nature, and presenters can attend online or in person.
