Especially since the 19th century, intense international and domestic migration has had a significant impact on the societies of East and Southeast Europe. Many countries in the region have been prominent emigration countries, while at the same time being major destinations for immigrants and experiencing large-scale domestic migration.

This conference aims at exploring a range of social, economic, and cultural effects of migration on the countries of East and Southeast Europe.
