Migration has been a constant feature of human history – “homo
migrans” have existed ever since “homo sapiens”. Recently the themes
of migration and integration have been especially topical in Europe
and in other parts of the world due to massive and ever-growing
movement of population. These spreading in-flows of immigrants have a
strong impact on the social, economic and political climate of host
countries, which are often highly challenged by the growing number of
immigrants and, therefore, have to review their immigration and
integration policies to adjust to the contemporary processes of
globalization. Integration is becoming more and more important at the
time when international migration is steadily growing and
diversifying and when immigration is undergoing profound changes.
Integration and its diverse components have therefore become a
central aspect that must be analyzed, supported and facilitated in
contemporary societies because only successful integration builds
communities that are stronger economically and more inclusive
socially and culturally.

It is important to analyze all these processes of our migrating world
applying various interdisciplinary approaches in order to better
understand the current trends in international migration, to discuss
and assess different aspects and changes in the fields of migration,
integration and cultural diversity. The international
interdisciplinary conference "Migrating World: Interdisciplinary
Approaches to Migration and Integration" aims to bring together
scholars from around the world to exchange and share their ideas and
research findings in all relevant aspects of migration and
integration. It will provide an effective interdisciplinary platform
for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss
the most recent innovations, trends as well as practical challenges
encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of migration,
integration and cultural diversity.
