About the Meeting

Going into its 16th edition this year, the IZA Annual Migration Meeting aims at bringing together junior and senior migration researchers to discuss their most recent work in a constructive atmosphere. We encourage submissions on all topics related to the economics of migration.
Highlight of the meeting is the keynote lecture, which will be delivered by Prof. Sir Paul Collier (University of Oxford).


Researchers interested in participating should submit a paper or an extended abstract by February 28, 2019, using our online application form.
Junior researchers should also submit their CV. In the case of multiple authors, please indicate the corresponding author who would be presenting the paper. Those invited to present a paper may also be expected to serve as a discussant. Papers should not be published prior to the date of the meeting.
Papers/abstracts must include:
  • Title of presentation
  • Three to five key words and JEL codes
  • Presenting author's name, title, organization affiliation, address, telephone, fax number, and e-mail address
  • Co-authors' names and affiliations
  • Presenters can make their papers available in advance by placing them on the IZA conference website so they can be linked to the preliminary program.
    Notifications will be sent by March 15, 2019.
