The 20th International Association for the Study of Forced Migration Conference (IASFM20)

With the theme "Forced Displacement in an Urbanizing World," the conference aims to explore the complex intersections of forced displacement, urbanization, and urban studies. In response to the growing challenges faced by displaced communities in urban settings, the conference invites researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and individuals with lived experiences to submit proposals for organized panels, individual papers, poster presentations, and creative works presentations. The deadline for submission is May 31, 2024. Registration for the conference will open in July 2024, with travel subsidies available based on financial need.
