Call for Applications: International Metropolis Conference

Students: Give your opinion to our politicians!

Do you have strong and clear ideas about the politics of migration and integration? Do you feel the need to express those ideas? The City of The Hague would love to hear from students!

In September 2017, the City of The Hague will host the International Metropolis Conference, an event that will bring together hundreds of social scientists, policy officials, and members of civil society to discuss this year’s theme: Migration and Global Justice.

Would you like to go to this conference and expand your knowledge? Then email us at with your vision of integration in the Netherlands and give your advice to the government on the subject.

The writers of the best 50 ideas will receive two free tickets for the International Metropolis Conference which will take place in the World Forum from 18-22 September 2017.

Join us at the 2017 International Metropolis Conference, The Hague

The theme of this year’s conference is Migration and Global Justice, and through it we will focus on mobility, voluntary and forced alike, on how our societies and governments respond, and on how to bring considerations of global justice to 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.
