In January 2006 the International Migration Institute (IMI) was founded at Oxford University by Stephen Castles and Steven Vertovec with the aim of developing a long-term and forward-looking perspective on international migration as an intrinsic part of global change. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of IMI, this conference seeks both to review the progress made in reaching these aims and to explore new conceptual horizons for understanding migration processes and their impacts for origin and destination societies. 
Conference themes:
We welcome papers addressing one or more of these three conference themes. We welcome theoretical and empirical (both quantitative and qualitative) contributions. The aim of this interdisciplinary conference is to advance theoretical understanding of the nature, drivers and impacts of migration processes. We particularly invite contributions addressing questions central to one of the IMI research themes. http://www.imi.ox.ac.uk/events/the-changing-face-of-global-mobility

This conference is planned as a follow-up to the two successful conferences, which took place at the University of Salzburg in 2010 and 2013. It will continue to build on areas previously investigated, and also open up new fields of academic enquiry.
