The 2017 International Metropolis Conference will be held on the 18th-22nd of September in The Hague, Netherlands. The theme for this year will be ‘Migration and Global Justice’ and will focus on mobility, voluntary and forced migration, how societies and governments respond, and how to bring global justice considerations into the discussion. The refugee crisis that continues to unfold in the Middle East and Europe is a clear case in point, but so, too, are the population shifts elsewhere in the world from resource-poor to resource-rich countries, and the movements from the hinterland to cities and suburbs.
