International Conference
Migration and Diasporas: Emerging Diversities
and Development Challenges
22-23 March 2017

Human mobility and migration is not a recent phenomenon rather it is one of the survival strategies adopted since the dawn of human civilization. Migration is the most important and natural phenomena leading to human progress and development. The International Migration Report (2015) brought out by UNDP underscores the importance of migration and development linkages. It mentions that there are more than 244 million people or 3.3 percent of world's population live outside their country of origin. Most of them are youth population with median age 39 years. Unlike earlier migration, the recent decade has seen growing feminisation of migration. The migration flow cannot be ignored in an interconnected global world considering its impact on the social, economic and political arena.

The conference will be an exercise to engage multiple stakeholders involved in different domains. This exercise will help to intensify the interdisciplinary conversation among scholars and experts in academics and policy. India being a country having one of the largest shares in the migrant and Diaspora population will certainly benefit with such exercise
