International Scientific Conference 

Migration and Ethnicity at the Beginning of the 21st Century

Zagreb, 26 February 2015

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the publication of the journal Migration and Ethnic Themes (1985‒2015), the Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies organized an international scientific conference entitled Migration and Ethnicity at the Beginning of the 21st Century which was held in Zagreb on 26 February 2015.

The conference was attended by researchers from various scientific profiles who, through their presentations and discussions, tried to explain approaches to the study of the scientific field of migration and ethnicity, analyze their different aspects as well as their connection, examine the effects on group and individual identification, and consider the demographic changes that occur as a result of migration processes or reflect the generally complex ethnic relations, in particular those in the region of Southeast Europe.

After the introductory words of the journal’s chief editors (the current editor-in-chief Sanja Klempić Bogadi, the former editor-in-chief Emil Heršak, and the founder and first editor-in-chief Milan Mesić), a plenary session followed first and then work in sessions. Invited lectures by prominent researchers were presented at the plenary session, while other presentations, due to a great number of participants from Croatia as well as from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia and Serbia, were divided into the following nine sessions: Migration policy, citizenship and international mobility;  The labour market, development and migrationInternal migration: causes and consequencesDepopulation and migrationImmigration processes and identityMigration and cultural exchangeEthnicity and fertilityMultiethnicity and identityNational minorities: status and rights.
