Our events have been effective in connecting researchers, key decision makers and practitioners around the globe, facilitating the production and effective communication of policy-relevant knowledge among different stakeholders since the mid-1990s. The Metropolis International network has steadily developed to include partners in North America, Europe and Australia, with a growing presence in Africa, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region.

In a world increasingly characterized by international mobility and large regional displacements, there is an urgent need to exchange scientific knowledge about migration and diversity, and to share experiences, challenges and best practices in their management. The goals of the International Metropolis Project are to enable such dialogue and serve the interests of all parties involved in the migration process.
