ATINER is organizing a Small Symposium on “The Challenge of Migration Flows in the Mediterranean Basin”, 18-21 December 2020, Athens, Greece as part of the 14th Annual International Conference on Global Studies.
The aim of the stream is to bring together academics and researchers from all areas of studies relative to migration, refugees and other related disciplines. Selected papers will be published at the Athens Journal of Mediterranean Studies in a special issue on the Refugee Crisis and Forced Migration Flows in the Mediterranean Basin. You may participate as presenter of one paper or observer.
Fee structure information is available on www.atiner.gr/fees.
Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, an Athens educational walking tour and one-day visit to Delphi. Details of the social program are available here.

The association was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.
The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER. Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).
Academically, the Association is organized into 6 Divisions, 37 Units and 6 Centers. Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.
