The 24th International Migration Conference will take place from 12 to 14 June 2024 at the University of Klagenfurt, Austria. Focus of the Migration Conference is on the topic «Global Citizenship Education» and «current pressing challenges in the context of migration and ‘Sustainable Global Social Work’».
With the conference theme “Global Citizenship Education”, the 24th International Migration Conference has chosen a thematic focus that opens multifarious perspectives in relation to international migration movements and migration societies. Flowing together and intermingling in the concept of Global Citizenship Education (GCED) are differing lines of tradition, some overlapping, some others contrasting. GCED is a political-programmatic concept that has been advanced and promoted especially by UNESCO as the educational organization of the UN as a response to the challenges and crises of the present.
In addition to GCED, the International Migration Conference deals with studies on current challenges in the context of migration. Of particular interest are interdisciplinary and international studies on education, participation, marginalization or cultures of memory. In addition, work on “Sustainable Global Social Work”, on “philosophy and migration” as well as on denationalizing and sustainable development and peacebuilding oriented approaches for migration societies will be presented.
